initial observation of laredo

a series of pawn ahops
billboards for attorneys
brightly colored buildings
in sullen disrepair
then the largest cemetery
bright blue holy mothers
rows of white carved crosses
a cornfield in grabite repose
stretching for miles
before the pawn shops
billboards for attorneys
brightly colored buildings
in worsening state of disrepair
am optical illusions dotted
with palm trees to force a
tropical delusion over
the sad city nestled
at the edge of mexico
