Haiku in Mexico

Parchment parasols.
Butterflies along the path
in light morning breeze.

The embroidery!
Sweet Aztecs lugging clay pots.
Turkeys in a bush.

Dry cornstalks, palms, pines.
On the hillside, blue houses,
moving shadow clouds.

Swollen clouds above
purple bougainvillea leaves.
The first drops of rain.

Gullies down basalt.
Smeared on the grimy pavement
red guts of a dog.

In the cracked mirror
five faces, seven bottles
in the cracked mirror.
