Bottom's Dream

it was a translator’s dream:
Octavio Paz is giving birth
i am late for the delivery
driving Lorca, already bleeding
from gun wounds his instructions
angry in a Ricky Ricardo sort of way
pull over at the filling station
por favor, please, como se- maternity ward
do no desire to go
whatever will be will be
need to push, get us all together
South American intrigue was in our way
i thought i had more to tell
for it had no bottom
