Three Dead Animals

The joyous poem I posted yesterday in honor of National Poetry Month can’t be allowed to stand alone. I’m compelled to add my own bleak, angry offering (some background):

Three Dead Animals

The bullfighter, writer, and sportsman Ignacio Sánchez Mejías died
the morning of 13 August, 1934.

The bull Granadino died
around that time.

The poet Federico García Lorca died
in the same era.
