The more you look, the less you really know. It’s a fact, a true fact. In a way, it’s the only fact there is.”

Louis

I picture you, Louis, stood up straight,
all readiness like a bassoon.
Generous breaths from your gentle face,
in place of a howl to the moon.

Clicking and clucking and popping and stomping
and tuning and tripping and tapping -
fingers labouring every surface
just in order to see what would happen.

The unseen Manhattan bounds around in your head:
cars roar, men cough, horns bellow.
Blind noises are beat by the drum in your hand;
New York’s been caught in a cello.

Shoes drub pavements with auricular violence,
coffee tastes like the sound of percussion.
Gulped by commuters in the shade of skyscrapers,
hourly beat by your hand in the rushing.

You’re there nine til five, wide open to life,
its excitement a repeating sound.
Lessons are learned by reciting the rhyme:
a life that was lived in a round.

Here stood a man whose mind was his fuel,
stories sloshing around in his jerrycan.
I picture you, Louis, doing your thing:
bearded, playful, American.

Quote

At his début as an exótico, Armendáriz wore no mask. “For my entrance, I wore a butterfly blouse of my mother’s. I wore the tail of my sister’s quinceañera dress. And then, to wrestle, a woman’s bathing suit.” He was billed as Rosa Salvaje, but the match was in Juárez, where everybody knew him. It was a terrifying night. “I thought it was a secret that I was gay, so I thought I was coming out. But everybody already knew. I was the only one who didn’t know.” Still, people yelled, “Kill the fag!”

Belladonna you must feed him
Add some pepper, make it pleasing
He’ll be laid out by the evening!
