on beauty

quito, ecuador

because the world is round, it turns me on


the canadian told us we were too polite to be americans
while we drank warm wine and held our complaints


because the wind is high, it blows my mind


an ecuadorian artist sponsored by nelson rockefeller
paints caricatures of fidel castro in his mountain home

in other news, we find friends and carnivorous plants


love is old, love is new


indigenous sweat painted these chapel ceilings gold
(but did it douse the hellfire?)


love is all, love is you


the kentucky fried chicken receipt says
para gringo
at the top

and we find our hotel on the first try.


because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
