World Cup Found Poetry: “Gesture” (Uruguay/Costa Rica)

With one gesture, the Pope,
after the former Russian president,
promising from Costa Rica
three thousand, three hundred miles
into space,
did a good job
in homage to revolutionary leader Che Guevara,
shows to me that
the floor has collapsed.
An awful day just got a whole lot worse.
