        BARCELONA STREETS

He's embarrassed, that damn Roberto     Closes his eyes
(Cheeks turn red)
He reads books in the Granja Parisina on Tallers Street
He walks through the port's back alleys in the
drizzle     (A really lame film
starring Robert De Niro)     But
why is he blushing?     (Damn Robert Bolaño:
kissing the pathetic and the ridiculous on the lips)
He opens his eyes like a skinny, dying bear
(A bear? You?)     Like R.A. Lafferty's Snuffles
He's embarrassed, he walks in the drizzle of the port
He stops in front of the movie posters
He reads in the Céntrico bar on Ramalleras Street
Freud Lacan Cooper     (Seriously)
He doesn't cover his tracks

Roberto Bolaño
