Legacy Del Louie Chicaspatas

El vato thought
he was badass

cruisin in his Escalade
with its 92” chrome wheels

in a barrio
known for its beautiful crime

though nothing good
ever came out of there

one day
el vato

was gunned down
as he opened the lambo door

the hip hop sound
escaping low

from his Texas-sized

the barrio walls
was shaking

as el vato
hit the ground

his two boys
still  strapped to their carseats

dicen que no hay SUVs
in heaven or hell

but who knows
what God be driving
