Face Fuck Book #130—Belinda

I've put this up for all to see
there's a photo of Belina and me
Belina sells tamales on the street
At the entrance to the supermarket
Verily, they can't be beat
She sells until the guards
       are told to chase her off
Although they had a few to quaff
She's sixty years old but looks like eighty
Seven children and many grand babies
She came across the bridge years ago
Never got legal as you might know
Just a few words of English does she voice
Like "Good morning, Hello, The tamale is nice
Spicy sweet, some with meat
Cheese, What do you please?"
She boils the meat every night
Hardly sleeps checking if they are all right
Her husband's dead now twenty years
No pension or SSI arrives for her
One of her sons was shot drive-bye
One's a policeman who tries
To visit her one evening a week
Takes her shopping to buy
The massa of which we speak
It comes from a place
       where they grind the corn
       right in your face
The meat comes from a butcher shop
They save the cuts that make her's tops
She uses real corn sheath for wrapping
No paper or foil will be slapping
Against the patty she shapes with care
Her daughters are all married it seems
Pregnant when in their teens
But do not judge them very harshly
The important thing is to buy the tamale
Passion flows though all the people
Both rich and poor, it's very simple
TV and movies may divert
Books may instruct, but loneliness hurts
And there is nothing like young sex
To cool the fires when life does vex


I asked for her the other morning
A crowd had gathered at her corner
A younger woman came to say
He grandmother had died this day
No one else would continue the service
The crowd looked angry, disappointed
Tamales like her's are truly anointed
Rapid speech in Mexican
       and then the offerings began
I pitched in twenty dollars as well
The money would go for her funeral
Held some where in East L.A.
We miss her much on this cruel day

thanks 1201 --i hope all is well--i have appologized to our mutual if i was too abrupt

the reason for detail is to humanize the characters and add to their credibility, i know you prefer pithy poems, as you say "in and out"--that reminds me of a girlfriend who after we orgasmed would alwaysmore...

I am kind :-)

I think kindness is both underrated and underused these days. But you are just a good writer, a really strong writer. I'm just being truthful about that. I don't always agree with your choice of subjectmore...
