The Mexican Dog

"this poem takes place before any white man stepped foot on this continent"

The Mexican dog
crossed the border

with all its fury
looking for the love

of his life
the river

was not built for this
he shuffled

back and forth
the land misshaped

and the sky in check
the fire promised

was so damn cold
only a dog

or a brown invader
could keep on keeping on
