Allí Por La Calle San Luis

West Side—corn tortillas for a penny each
Made by an aged woman
and her mother.
Cooked on the homblack of a flat stove,
Flipped to slap the birth awake,
Wrapped by corn hands,
Toasted morning light and dancing history—
earth gives birth to corn gives birth to man
gives birth to earth.
Corn tortillas—penny each.
No tax.
