Leaving Costa Rica Before the Election by Leonard S. Edgerly
published in Volume 1, Issue 3 on May 17, 1994

The red and blue parade
fills my streets
children waving flags
        our side and your side
        dinner and dessert
        rising to meet the slogans
                honking all the horns
                tomorrow's forecast: green and white

                the same idea
                only more so
                since these tourists
                        will have departed.
