Bouncing Benny Mata Days

every Wednesday night
Beto and his buddies

cabrónes each
and everyone

watched All Star Wrestling
live on KONO TV

then went out
to burglarize houses

and cars
they were hard workers

you can’t
take that away from them

I like this, thieves have their honor too. I have a good friend who writes in Texas as well. His name is Robert Burlingame. He is not Chicano, obviously, but has published many a lovely poem about the desert. Do you know him? His work often appears in the the Texas observer. Bernadette

No, I don't know him. I will check out his work. Thanks, Bernadette.
