April 16, 2016 "For today’s prompt, write a poem about (or at) a food establishment."

The Taco Stand by Farmacia Guadalajara

open late afternoon
with guarantee of
taco stand
next to brightly lit
pharmacy comes to life
with scented smoke and
the sounds of knives
onions cilantro radishes more onions.
one gringo patiently stands
in line, listens intently to orders given
in a foreign tongue, trying to make
sure he gets what others are having.
juicy meat and trimmings on the
half shell
so to speak .
lean over slightly to
grab a bite
red sauce
green sauce
and some sweet white
to wash it down.
por favor.

Gracias por leer......
