Milagro On S. Presa

Doña Ignacia ran out of the bus
flagged down a passing Ramirez Taxi

while Elena
the other passenger

did her best to stop
the bleeding

overhead unseen by no one
a shooting star

disappeared over
Mission San Jose

others would swear

La Llorona
wandered nearby streets

Ramirez Taxi
had been in business

since 1943
if you are to believe Doña Ignacia

the ambulance
got Luis to Robert B. Green

just in time
weeks later

he was back on his route
driving against the current

camarón que se duerme
se lo lleva la corriente
