Chicha stains your teeth purple,
No matter how much it’s watered down.
Bubble gum flavoured Inca Cola,  
Fluorescent lemon,
Which tinges tongues a darker yellow.
Nazca lines paints animal skeletons
Of a time before and brightens the sun
They hail the moon.

Busy markets, dirty streets,
Tin shack houses,

Chicken carcasses.
