Light

Version 2
An earthenware jar sits on a stone ledge in Zapopan, Mexico.
 


Languid afternoon—
the light inside a clay jar
seeps to the surface.

Carefully the artisan decorates the cup.
The lucky one who buys it will have a regal sup.

Making Memories

Photo illustration for a Guadalajara Reporter story in 2016, Guadalajara, Jalisco, México


Someone made some memories,
Made them long ago,
Using a film camera,
And this is what I know:
 
The women in the photo
Do not smile or blink.
Their bland looks betray nothing—
One wonders what they think.
 
Each woman holds a doggie,
The doggies are quite still.
Were the little beasties drugged
And held against their will?
 
And what about the ribbons
The women do not wear?
Are they content with hair spray
To batten down their hair?
 
A hundred questions pop up
About this photograph;
Some of them are sobering,
And some just make me laugh.

One-Eyed Crow

IMG_3016
Caged bird for sale, Mercado San Juan de Dios, Guadalajara, Jalisco, México
 
 

A one-eyed crow
glares at me from atop
the roadside birch.
If it had hands,
it would be waving me on,
disgusted by my clothes and hair,
which are caked with mud.
But crows have no hands,
and they cannot wave,
nor can they carry sabers
to cut down their foes.
If I could capture that crow,
I’d put it in a cage
lined with newspapers
and sell it—cheap—
at Saturday’s flea market.
Instead, I am retreating
from its mocking tongue.

At the festival

DSC_0040 (3)
A dog explores the weeds and grasses near Lake Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico
 
 

at the festival
she wore only poems
that she had listened to before…
before the wine
before the fruit
before the shades of night
came without warning
to spirit her away
from where she walked
with her favorite dog
the two of them together
clad only
in poems
