At the Border

Lanchas tipicas de la ciudad de Tuxpan, Veracruz: photo by Pacomexico, 2008

The same dream badpennyish in its infernal persistence,
returning once or twice a decade, forty, fifty years now:
the dark quiet sea along the sandy shores of Veracruz
where the exhausted gulf flings itself on the beach
with a flash of scales, heaving up like a suicidal fish...
Wandering through semi-deserted narrow streets of long
low buildings, gradually losing one's way to discover oneself
trapped in a strange labyrinth of turnings and returnings, 
coming finally to stand under the shelter of an arcade;
suspended skyways crisscross the night beyond,
vanishing into gray-brown obscurity; fear, unknowingness;
above, a hazy neon image blinking on and off in the half-light
between night and morning and nevermore
signals Frontera Frontera Frontera...
