a natural collusion

Rate: 2 Flag

wind carried cold
through el barrio
to le grotto ghetto
that secret space
where muralistas
channeling frieda
diego and zarraga
paint monuments
to the past
to lives not lived
and anything else
eyes itch to see.

cold curled up next
to the frescos
hoping its frigidity
would halt
the desecration.

wind didn’t wait
or beg to disagree.
it simply whipped
cold about the place;
howling
as callow concrete
workers, intending
to giant buddharize
people’s expression,
found their equipment
inoperable and their will
power dissolving
before the heat of
cold-wind’s anger.
