Iberian Split.

One man with a hooked nose and a grey beard.

Salazar with polished shoes smelling of African feces

and Asian delights.

Rubber cut apart but our Catholic crosses

Master of chains and cargo

He licks the seeping sap off of the trees until they turn sour.

A woman glazed with Mediterranean olives oil

red lipstick greased with Indian blood

a soft, round face glittering with gold

pulling children from parents while shouting in Latin.

An Iberian marriage until their woman:

a handsome Brazilian man with a syncretic face

a¬†woman with “mestizo chola” tattooed across her stomach

remind the Iberian couple of the abandoned grandchildren

whom spilt them into selfish divorces.
