MIMI-MONA POETRY: What's Luck Got To Do With It?

Mexico...where we can dance to Mariachi
music that rings like hammered tin and
voices singing in Spanish barber-shop harmony.

The heat and dust of Arizona are not left there
but the silver moon's soft light over the
sandy beach is a more romantic setting.

Who can resist El Camino del Diablo,
the Devil's Highway, with warnings of
wild animals, drug smugglers, and unexploded ordnances?

There is a road that is more like a narrow trail
through the desert, like a wolf chasing its
elusive prey, like driving down a bobsled run of soft sand.

Blushing at overt sexuality, a lexicon of
double entendres, and our masks of
x-rated desires, we laugh at banal words like coger.

We christen each of the cities we enter
with lips locked in a public display
of affection for each other and for Mexico.
