the bull of the beautiful

for Ana-Maria Bell

there are beautiful people
singing beautiful songs
amidst the din of students between classes

papers rustling and a conversation
on the ethics of bull fighting
versus the cultural value

one singer stops because
she has an opinion
she is strongly opposed

and in her argument
she rides the pathos
of baby cows in spanish dress

I think the rhetoric monster has creeped into your poem. Be on the alert :)
