Theme: Narrative

Barfly

Outside a bar, Bella Vista, in the sleepy town of Barranquilla-
Colombia- a donkey wore a hat with holes for its ears, dozed.
Hot day, its serenity was endless. Around its closed eyes blue
flies crawled. I’m kind to animals, waved my hand in front of
its eyes to get rid of flies. The beast saw it differently, kicked.
In the street only the donkey, me and the cruel midday sun,
everyone else had sought refuge in the dark interior of houses.
Looked at the bar’s dark, cool interior, since the beast didn’t
care for my sympathy, I limped back in there and had a beer.
