Aquarena Springs

In another life
el ocho patas

was Ralph
the Swimming Pig

of Aquarena Springs
he entertained

the children
and the adults

who never grew up
he embarrassed

the other boy pigs
while the girl pigs

swooned and
daydreamed of Ralphie Ocho

but alas
one day

they closed
Aquarena Springs

and Ralph
drowned his sorrows

in the mud
that was left

and which turned
into the city of San Marcos
