Mi Tejana

for la erika

She's hot and humid
like Corpus Christi.

She's unbearable
like summer in the Rio Grande Valley.

She's noisy and wild
like the Southside of San Antonio.

She's arrogant
like Houston drivers.

She's got great thighs
like the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders.

She can be cold
like Lubbock winters.

She can be aloof
like distant Amarillo.

She can drive me to the edge
like Old El Paso,

but she's always there
when I forget what town I'm in.
