More Poems from Mexico

from "Gringo's Tour of Mazatlan"

Speaking in tongues

Funny how one runs into

gringos in Mexico, who have

spent lives nestled in the

idealistic tender arms of white

man's rules, and

values which decry official

language adherence, English

of course, to keep the very

fiber of civilization intact,

while over umpteen beers

each night, until rosy nosed,

contemptuously disclaim Dylan

as a whiner who can't sing,

but wants rosy nosed tubby

white men to send all their

money to some starving sick kid

in Venezuela, which certainly works

for me. It's a hard sell

for a dysfunctional opinion, as

hearing this all,

and then his ordering, in a

language inconsistent with

this country, and

him complaining about their

lack of ability to

understand him,

puts him square in the middle

of the cross-hairs

to his argument
