Pushando Botones

“Those damn gabachos!” said Al O’Canas
when Armstrong walked on the moon,

the same Al who had led a boycott
against the King Bee Restaurant,

yeah, the one on Kingsbury Street,
Al who drove around

in a big old car with no brakes,
the monster had fins

and a push button transmission,
the botones were on the right side

of the steering wheel,
he had to push the reverse button

to stop the car,
don’t remember

why he objected
to white men walking.
