@5

He would quote Garcia Lorca to shopkeepers

Engage salesmen or waiters with a sharp

Interested

Invested

Wit

We were buying shoes in Mexico City

We noticed a plaque

That this was the very spot

Cortes met Moctezuma

Which launched another political discourse

Gathered a small crowd

Until we remembered the shoes we were

Supposed to be buying

Were theoretical

Not yet existential

At 5

In the afternoon
