MARKET DAY





There are men without legs women with no eyes an hombre with no arms with which to beg the shock shiver of seeing a burnt leg withered hanging from a silver crutch while they all split the sea frothing around them those yelling all in deep voices mazanas cinqo por diez mamita mamita fresas libra por viente at the edge of the darkened thickness inside of this market a threshold between the world above and below day and night dreaming and wide eyed in this maze ah maze means nothing here a weak withered word trying to wrestle a la dereche a la isquerda smoking incense hanging over blackberries fist sized I exagerated but isn't this an exageration all forever of it that would bury a city in fruit flesh chicken legs shining livers the size of glistening birthday balloons chili's in such profusion such piles mounded mirroring the volcanos outside pots and pans platic bottles of solutions green yellow red pink violet white with which to wash your floors for luck bring happiness to your home quetzales to your business health to your body peace to your warring mind turn right and enter an explosion
EARLY LIGHTEARLY LIGHTEARLY LIGHT

Busy start on market day
of kitchens and plastic flower patterned covered tables and sizzling pork fat and frying potatoes and bubbling stews rice beans fat blue tortillas pasa adelante Maya huipiles in riots of color the smallest of people carrying weight unfathomable weight in blue plastic tubs on their head thick necks sandaled feet skin so brown it should be characterized as precious metal carrying babies as small as mice inside rounded pouches strung from shoulders arms are full of palm leaves bouquets of manzanilla drifting it's perfume then burst forth again from the deep into daylight pin hole blinding sun Maya kneeling on red blankets blanketed with red and blue fruits purple and green vegetables halting that part of you that imagines with a slap because this is no dream but come back tomorrow after you sleep.
