Dead bullfighter in front of a mirror
By T.S. Hidalgo

The roses don’t work,
I’m dead I’m ashamed,
in my left side, too red, the blood doesn’t work,
no tears, the infinite awaits:
you, surrounded by bulls,
you had just recently been unaware of it:
the patient gods yearn to submerge themselves in our fears.
