Raza Comica

The blue plate special
featured beans

I told the waitress
bring me mas

and more pico del gallo
don’t be shy, chulita

she brought coffee
dark as a black hole

the moon was busy
but had come to earth

in the white man’s arroyo
La Llorona was chingona

my short pants upon a chair
la vieja making bacon

I don’t know where
she got the maranito

maybe aplastado by the moon
when it ran out of air

it crushed the pyramid
I use to brag about

we have so much
not to be proud of it’s funny
