Pizza Comes To Papalote

I curse my cousin Joe Tovar
for introducing me to pizza

back in the Sixties
at that pub on West Kingsbury Street

operated by a gringo
and his fine oriental wife

next to those fucking Shanafelts’
junkyard

you could see Ida Nieto’s house
from there

I had a crush on her
but I was too damn ugly to tell her
