Poem of the Week 03/20/18

Speedy Motherfucking Gonzales

Claudia Serea

Rung like rags,
we climb aboard,

little life left
in these body carcasses,

juiceless lemons
after making lemonade
all day.

But this driver was bit
by the bat from Hell.

Hunched over the wheel,
he’s the hawk
of the highway.

If I weren’t so tired,
I’d let out an Arriba, arriba,
ándale arriba!

when the bus flies
onto Route 3,

from the city in flames.
