Not All Orchids & Butterflies



No, not all parts                                 
of my new life here
are orchids and butterflies—
wouldn’t be that way anywhere
But in Mexico,
living full-time
as a legalized permanent resident
and all the promise
and commitment
and responsibility                 
and long-termness that   
that brings

has its moments

that’s for sure…
has its moments           
for sure…
they just somehow
seem to have different
edges, and dimensions
some obvious and in your face,
subtle and submerged in the color and rhythm of the culture….
