Carnival

Darwin Pagnac


Nearby,
Waves fracaso, flatten, recede, slipping
Beneath blue black moonlit Pacific calm
Melodiously singing same sizzling melody
Meat makes skewered over crisp coals.

Countless,
Bilingual estudiantes strangely gathered
Tightly stacked high, watching, applauding
Destructive ceremonious action methodically
Performed upon dying, proud, fighting bull.


Everywhere,
Church's probe wooden tables, chairs
Randomly scattered constantly rearranged
Deliberately between moody wondering
Stumbling fumbling festive drinkers.

Wafting,
Breezes diseminarse smoky aroma de
Grilling pollo, pork, carne, intoxicatingly
Thick like small individual grains de arena
Upon la playa muy cerca la carnaval del toro.
