queso menonita…

November 29, 2006

morning commute
drivetime liturgy
npr, coffee
thoughts
adriftlourdes garcía-navarro
colony Mennonites
in Chihuahua
México

past and present
drift together
a rich
monk’s blend
aroma

overturned spade
loamy childhood subsoil
circularity
serendipity

under the compost

digging
I uncover…los mochis
missionary exodus
powder blue Ford galaxy
cargo aboard the iron ship
ferrocarril del pacífico

virgin
train ride
nine year-old
eyes rapt in awe
gaping
copper canyon
carved out of
earth

packed bags
traveling shoes
leaving
going
somewhere

cuatemoc stop
overnight sojourn
strange colony
vaguely familiar
yet different

factory visit
wheels of cheese
queso menonita
tangy, pungent
fecund
