at the police museum
in Bogota
in La Candelaria district
a police guide brings you around
and points
to various objects
such as a desk
or a military jacket
and he gives you little blurbs
little bits of information
regarding the items
and their relationship with the
capture of one
of the world’s biggest drug lords
and towards the end
he starts to smile
and he says
in heavily-accented English
after pointing to a faint smudge
on a Spanish tile,
“that is blood, of Pablo Escobar. “
