Our Hero’s Latest Book

“I read the latest
book by Mecreo Gringo
and I can’t

tell him apart
from every other
white man!” observes Mr.Bones.

So Henry
picks up
the hero’s book

and reads
to his astonishment
the poetry that

only sparkles
if you sprinkle
Cheech and Chong’s magic dust

upon the
desultory words
of chicano poetry gone bad---

the elements
are missing from
Juan Seguin Elementary.

You can’t make
out of white bread.
