Treasure Island

Here in Oaxaca it's the Night of the Radishes


Here in Oaxaca it's the Night of the Radishes

the buddha back in place
He doesn't mind being `catholic'
in Mexico
Part of the long preliminaries of the days
preparation
for carving through the red skin

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
