Mexico

Nuevo Laredo,

photo by hungrybison

fourteen headless bodies stuffed into a rusted hulk.

Fourteen heads,
in ice boxes.
outside city hall.

Blood-stained bodies,
four women,
five men,

hanging,
from the bridge.

Nuevo Laredo,

where vicious dogs wage war.

Dismembered remains,

found inside a van.

A car explodes outside the police station.
