What Are You Famous For

The French are famous for great food and wine, 
the Eiffel tower and the guillotine.
The English are famous for cheddar,
Shakespeare, Newton, and tabloid chatter.
Germans down tons of beer and wurst,

Every Day You Play

loose translation by Michael R. Burch

Every day you play with Infinity’s rays.
Exquisite visitor, you arrive with the flowers and the water.
You are vastly more than this immaculate head I clasp tightly

Trucker Duckie

His P.I.C handle is:

Transporting border illegals is the

Outfoxing blue Smoky Bears

On a golden sandy beach.
On a dusty dry footpath with warm air 
around your feet.

Spanish guitars play sounds so sweet.
The evening light is warm and friendly, 
the night sky blends into the ocean as 
the waves lap at your feet.

Colonial Mentality
The colonial mentality
Penetrated our mind and heart; 
We as people felt inferior
Race after the raiders depart.

Such invaders like the Spanish
Had influenced our attitude; 
We had followed their tradition, 
Thinking that those customs were good.

After we were colonized by
The United States...Read More

I love you only because I love you

I love you only because I love you;
I am torn between loving and not loving you,
Between apathy and desire.
My heart vacillates between ice and fire.

A Random Moment

Matamoros, 2 p.m.

Me siento en esta mesa

Todo el rato

Kings are not infallible
when exercising power or taste
(though they would deny both).
Which explains why he, Le Roi Soleil 
himself, blundered so disgracefully 
when he put Valázquez’s portrait 
of the little Spanish princess...Read More

Cracks In The Facade
I first saw her face framed by Spanish moss
Beneath the oaks of Georgia -
Beauty beyond compare

Her golden hair crowned the deepest blue eyes
That stared beyond my presence -
Her lips frozen and cold 

Fascinated I continued to stare

Send Mephistophelian madman back to stone age
Impossible mission, nonetheless

The shortest distance to Cathay

Lay to the north to the South Sea.

Was reserved for England.

Were long in treacherous waters
