Ombligo Del Space Time Continuum

The viejito carries a plastic grocery bag
and a stick to ward off
the barrio dogs and gang mensos
in the bag is a package of factory tortillas
his viejita can't make tortillas anymore
even young Mexican women
can't make tortillas anymore
he says out loud as he walks
downhill on Merrimac St.
on the Southside of San Antonio

he's the navel of the city
and the whole Diosdamned city
swirls down into his belly
