Susan Hawthorne #344 parilla

you see the sign everywhere
in the streets restaurants
advertising parilla    grills

I first read this word ten years ago
but it was not an article about food
it was about torture

if you've ever seen a shearer's bed
narrow metal bed with a thin mattress
remove the mattress and you have

the parilla harmless until the prisoner
is connected to the electric charge
I can't order parilla in restaurants
