all of life

she did not understand

why I went to the bullfights

tho’ I told her

all of life is there

you see the matador?

he stands there

performing veronicas

with his cape

urging the bull to his will

forcing the animal

to charge when he wants

how he shapes

the beast to do these things

watching for weakness

paying attention to the details

of how the bull behaves

so he can make a clean

complete kill?

that there

is office politics

minus the cape

the paseo & music

but the sword?

you bet

still there
