Matthew Dexter

Menudo is for Sundays
heads hanging from a bridge
palm fronds splintered
hurricane lightning
and further inquiry suggests
that bloggers shall be silenced
by the machetes of deaf reckoning
the corral of the tourism industry
cowers in the sculpture of neglect and rot.
Matthew Dexter lives in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Like nomadic Pericú, he survives on a hunter-gatherer subsistence diet of shrimp tacos, smoked marlin, and cold beer.
