(The burrito babe)
Yeah, you look like you’re from New York
Is that a good thing?
Yeah, that’s a good thing.
But you don’t sound like you’re from New York
Is that a good thing?
Yeah, that’s a good thing
I’m reading some poetry tonight down the road…
Burrito babe wrinkled up his nose & said
Ugh, poetry
Ugh, poetry.

who’s afraid of aging again

You should see me in them jeans / 
It’s hard to describe and /
Being cocky is just a part of the vibe

Poetry by Ruby Brunton

Vanya plays his accordion
as we reach the harbor at Chacahua
women start to sway their hips,
the men pull our boat in

Vanya plays his accordion
100 smiling children start to dance
They lead us along the beach,
sand forming clouds behind them

Pescadillos, tostadas & empanadas
are brought out on plastic trays
the servers, age 8, radiate in
their shiny purple finery

You know nothing of the delicate balance
of this economy

Vanya puts down his accordion
long enough to eat
if it weren’t for the heat
I’d want his body on top of mine
