Ontitled – by Chase Ober

Welcome

to el Paraíso.

Yesterday they

replaced His face

with a wanted poster

but didn’t offer any reward.

I’m not sure if there was still a script

to seguir, but, some of us were wondering

if we could make our own colores. And the cielos

raved a fortnight until all be left were sinners with no one

to cast them down. The antichristo yelled, “we are Sendero Luminoso!”

And then the militares climbed up dragging cruces for those

that read the poster, saying “you’ve broken so many

crimes, you’d have to go into debt just to be

able to understand what I don’t get paid

to explain to you. In fact, maybe

I should’ve charged you

money upfront to

read this. And

maybe I

Have.”
