Poem #73 of 365

el tiene un mojo
atop his head
a hair magic
the firmament
of godliness.

he has a mohawk
hair with indian name
that bisects his
skull and thrusts
middle fingers
to the sky.

el tiene un mojo
asi se dice en
mexico cuando
hablan del
haircult de punks
in el Defe.

yo tomo un mojito
my first in this
life and the herbal
infusion takes me
to Colorado thirsts
and hot springs

puede ser que
mojito significa
'little mohawk'
and when we sip
this Cuban elixir
it makes our
stunned hair
stand up on end.
