cerbatana origins and progressions in haiku

June 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

a highway runs through
this pueblo once made of mud
and great fields of crops

tabac and cafe
cana maiz and frijole
casas now stand there

four vacas per house
and a well to draw water
i can flush toilets

guidos jimenez
a boyero, now a don
he still knows the way

once families
(mas o menos, let us say)
begins this story

hidalgo, lopez
acuna y morales
moreno, guzman

amador, marin
elizondo, quesada
y los valverde

cerbatana grows
with new faces, less jobs, but
heart to find the way
