Tex-Mex Nirvana

Texas cold front
it brings me to Taqueria Arandas
off 7th street, eastside ese
Sipping on café con leche y azúcar
waiting for the menudo
Spanish yelled across tables
middle aged and old men, brown, rough skin
The red jukebox blasts Norteño
Mom’s menudo comes to mind,
aunts laughing and gossiping
“Mas cafe?” the gordita asks
“Si, por favor.”
