colombia

cartagena + medellín

and now the end is near,
and so i face the final curtain.

the tide bows toward the cartagena bay
as we hunt for ATMs and breathe:

colombia.

i’ve lived a life that’s full
i’ve traveled each and every highway

but the purchasing power of the u.s. dollar
is mostly proven in south american chain stores

regrets, i’ve had a few
but then again, too few to mention

street art isn’t
corporate-sponsored state-sponsored bureaucratic shit-sponsored.
no se vende.

each careful step along the byway

when i bit off more than i could chew

existing ethereally in a place we cannot find
and never want to leave

i’ve loved, i’ve laughed and cried
i’ve had my fill, my share of losing

un día más
over the integrated slums of a first-class second city

we pardon slaughterers, we make more treaties

for what is a woman?
what has she got?

if not herself, then she has naught
to say the things she truly feels
and not the words of one who kneels

the record shows i took the blows
and did it my way.
