ferry terminal at punta renas

someone’s failed empire,
tourist villas rotting and marked
with tag names local teenagers go by,
street meat vendors laughing
with bad teeth and big dreams

municipal industry seems lively
and i think the locals are happy
that the tourists aren’t staying
to make the rich men
richer

the ferry itself
is full of merry people,
a band to play the festival
and trucks full of livestock
off to slaughter
