It's used while speaking indians (mexicans?) in a book of M. V. Llosa. I am interested about origin and meaning of this phrase. Contextual it should mean something like "my friend", but it's only my opinion.


"Cabo" is a rank of military hierarchy, equivalent to "corporal" in Anglo-Saxon culture. The use of the possessive "mi" corresponds to a respectful manner, as in "Oh, captain! My captain!".


military rank corporal or between corporal and sergeant (cabo primero). I guess you're reading "La ciudad y los perros". I studied in that place...
