Vivencias monumentales 24/2/1

Rain threatens the little crowd
standing on the esplanade at CECUT

children run through puddles

the poet writes nothing
a raindrop wets his notebook

umbrellas appear amid the public
waiting for their spectacle

then it begins

giant woman face blooms
around omnimax dome

mouth, nose, lips, speak

projected from small white tent
of silent switches and glowing lights

she says her girlfriend was
raped and beaten by the police

spent months in a coma

gringos rent earphones in English
for ten dollars and their photo-I.D.

to hear the great round wall

a tear streaks her huge cheek
gleaming in the rainy night

the boyfriend beaten much worse
never recovered his wits

beyond the paseo and McDonald's

gringo tijuanense
