Ruben Dario and Freshwater Sharks

reading new translations of Ruben Dario
and wondering about freshwater sharks

they live in Lago Nicaragua
amid the water
listen to the Gospel
from Ernesto Cardenal

Walker went to Nicaragua and ate human flesh because he could

that buckaroo in his young boys cowboy outfit with fringe and white handled pistols

it is possible to drive to Nicaragua but the poetry stays with the freshwater sharks
