Nuevo Laredo - Poem by paul bamberger

where the dying give flight to meanness temples raised to sentencing of the soul
any fool can tell you the market's going to crash
but you keep opening and closing the door
looking for the boy who once stood where bridge and fence meet
has he crossed and in crossing found the sun grinding down the last of the day
as you gather up your things to get out of Nuevo Laredo
you who had climbed back fence into the fast comings and goings of a mexican night
you who had taken a girl who in her youth had everything to give
in that one unnamed moment glad to be done with her
