Norman MacLeod Poems >>
Antidote (Nogales, Sonora, Mexico)
Topers in Nogales
Prefer the Greaser's Side;
Laws are not astringent,
Thirst is deified...
Mountains mauve and beryl,
Their ragged ends awry,
Piercing through the topaz
Melted in the sky.
Against the fading glow;
Autumn night winds blow.
Silenced palm trees quiver;
(Rustle in the mesquite
And foot upon the grass!
Do the yuccas mutter?
Can the shadows pass?)
Never make me queries
Nor take me into hand!
Mescal is a refuge
I can understand...
