More Poems from Mexico

from "Gringo's Tour of Mazatlan"

The closing act

The show was under the

neon sign of La Isla Market

where so many other performances

took place with a more

splendid line-up than Vegas

as one young boy dipping

and undulating like a

Turkish belly dancer, and

a rhythm section half pint

drumming out the frantic beat of

macarena, from a

discarded mango stick and

a mineral water bottle A la

Buddy Rich, then finishing up

the act with a rendition of

Broadway on Sabalo Street

that would make Ethel Merman proud


sprinted for the bus

heading south, leaving me

all this

for the cost

of a Corona.
