Some of the time, sun at my back


     --Canten me canciones de valor
        Rio de Tenampa, Los Lobos

Stop at Los Juanes
and pick up two pounds
of Diez Millos and
soft corn tortillas

Loscha River in my head
Masha Gessen in my head
Karen Bodeen in my head
Svetlana Alexievich in my head

Stop in the Bingo Parking Lot
in Union Gap, write that down

Write that down so I'll know,
later, what happened,
what was important,
I don't know now,
looking for that larger
word of love

Love is a river heart
Los Juanes is so cool
Those two Johns,
they could be me
