BARRIO SAMBA

A Rendango between ai li and Alexis K. Rotella
London and Los Gatos, California
19 - 28 February 1997

 

 

hearing it
miles away
barrio samba

 

all night
the rooster crows

 

at the local flea-pit
re-run of
fred and ginger

 

The three-way mirror
not large enough
for the salsa queen

 

she finds the pimple
he was staring at

 

a wild rose
between his
perfect teeth

 

left at my table
a panama hat
