The House On Manco Street

El ocho patas lived in the house
on Manco Street

it was full of sand
and cenizas

it was purple
en el distrito de los reyes

he lived there
with his eight feet

half of them
dipped in the dirty

San Antonio River
his eight calzetines

painted the river brown
eventually he left town

and Manco Street
limped back into history
