I. Brokeback Market

you check your guns at the door
the lonesome cowboys on the soundtrack
watch your every move
with rustling eyes

II. HQ Super

this is the peaceable kingdom
swans and geese are for sale
pigeons and sweetmeats
fans and automobiles and diapers

III. meat market

the lonely matador leaves his ring
for security at the carniceria
you can fight it at four
and have it on the table by seven
