high-tech mandala



the creosote at the foot of the Franklins
the freight trains on Doniphan
marranitos made & baked just right
flour tortillas from Vista Market
the short drive to Coco’s house
cruising around the Westisde
getting lost in the Lower Valley
finding gems at the Bookmark
impulse purchases at the Whoopee Bowl
kicking it with the squad
finding something to do
laughing off the angst with those who know

I miss you, El Paso.
