Dispatches from the wilds of Poetania – Chile

She’s fallen in love
with a boxer
named Napoleon.
I try to tell her
it won’t work –
he will eventually leave her
for glory,
conquest,
and Europe
(as all men do).
She just smiles quietly,
and looking at me
with wary inquisition
resumes
chewing
on the skirting board.
