River Count

The mojado drowned after reading

when they found his body
it was as white as a snowman

the Border Patrol pickup truck
brought up the crescent moon

neck like a giraffe
they never identified him

the jungle he had come from
must have left a sweet taste on someone

the river flowed
and shrugged its shoulders

as it snaked
alongside Texas
