La Mula

El ocho patas
had a girlfriend

who kicked like a mule
she had eyes of sea foam

and thighs
that lit up like fireworks

el ocho patas
invented fire

and he himself offered woman
the apple empanada

in the Garden of Eden
which had always been located

in Seguin, Texas
of all places

and the Lord Almighty
endowed el ocho patas

with enough feet
to outrun fate
