River Death

The Border Patrol agent
stood over the body.

The Rio Bravo
ignores it all.

The Rio Grande
don't give a damn.

Chamaco has died
a thousand times before.

Chamaco can't swim
but he loves that dirty river.

Chamaco's soul
spells trouble.

Chamaco's mind
swells double.

Chamaco's dying
to die another day.
