Chamaco's Demons

Chamaco's dragon loves tamales,
breathes half-ass fire, suffers from insomnia,

is deftly afraid of fear,
digs a hole in Casa Chica

thinking that's the way to Yale---
but it's the padlock company instead.

His spiny back
is back.

His laugh
is full of smoky phlegm.

When he says I am I am,
you know he is he is.

Oh, how, the knot on his neck
disfigures and delights.
