A Caccia poem.
Virtual Tourist in Panama

Let's do the tourist thing in Panama:
visit the Canal,
and then Panama City.

We will watch as the the ships rise three locks up1
and descend three down;
and take pictures and selfies.

Near the Pacific entrance of the canal2
Panama City
invites our exploration.

Atop "the mountain of beautiful singing"34
the Baha'i Temple
beckons us to meditate.

Come with me to the Isthmus of Panama5,
virtual tourist
to Latin America.
