Macias Bakery

in memory of the bakery on Guadalupe Street

for my brothers Val and Julian

My brothers were at Macias Bakery
when Macias came out to the front
my brothers asked him
how do you make such good pan dulce
and Macias blurted out
" pura manteca!"
a split second later
my brothers could see
his dark brown face turn red
after having given away trade secrets
and every time we get together
we laugh our asses off
thinking Macias is happy as hell
making cuernitos para el diablo
