Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Aires Buenos
100% European, I’m told at the airport.
Or is it only 80%, 50%?
Or is it 100% Latin American?

Is it the Paris of Latin America,
or the New York of Latin America,
or the Buenos Aires of the world?

Who are the bonaerenses?
jaded people who have seen it all,
who have all they need,
who never stop to see themselves
as a fuzzy reflection in a store window,
or who see themselves continuously
in each other’s eyes?

Who are the bonaerenses?
a surly waiter at a restaurant,
a cab driver who speaks fast
but drives slow to increase his fare,
a beautiful couple dancing tango,
but they’re not a couple,
only two people who love tango.

The big city at the end of the earth,
the isolated city,
the world of Buenos Aires
a universe inside a country,
a country devoted to a city.

Who are the bonaerenses?
deliberate and deliberating,
alive and aloof.
Where do they come from?
Where are they going?
Who will they be
when they get there?
