So, There It Is

Feed me tamales for breakfast

3 for $1 from out the backdoor of someone's

Auntie's sweaty kitchen.

Gown me, bellyful,

in sugarcane and wet sky.

Some afternoon

take me down to the courthouse.

Oh, marry me like you would a river,

Geronimo-hollering all the way down the bluff.
