Road Trip Chichen Itza

Kukulcan Pyramid

Pollo seco and a bottle of coke light

All you can eat or all you can leave behind

Scraggly tress with green leaves

sway gently in the sweltering breeze

Bobble headed tourists

rest comfortably on the

air conditioned Mercedes Benz bus

as our tour guide announces

that the Mayan were thought by some to have

come “from out of the space”

A faint smell of diesel peppers the air

Onward to Chichen Itza
