The man in the box
Authorities found this note on the body of Padre Bombal.
A poor boy’s libido whips his mind, taunts it always.
Southerners and their yellow eggs and yellow asses.
An opiate solution watered down, held under the tongue.
A zoo or pack of people, some two-legged, some crawling.
A peaceful body’s misfortune in all of its snarling.
The others, the others, the others, and their others.
Thought, a rare element, on a tetherless placental globe.
