Xanti: In My Comic Book Mind

By carlosjackal

Corpse in a glass box parade.
Raise your candle lit.

IRA Furs.
A shop for all seasons.

Santa Maria is on the phone again.
St. Dennis reincarnated.

A cat sleeps grinning in the side streets.
I start to wonder what all the fuss is about..

and Zante
becomes Xanti
in my comic book mind.
