Soul Clappin’ Pupusa Lady

Lady on the
Corner of 16th
Near Valencia

Pupusa lady
With a pupusa lady’s
Shape and a pupusa
Lady’s smile,
Pupusa eyes

Pupusa lady creating
A new moon in the
Creases of hands whose
Stories live in the silence
Of drums

Pupusa lady, giving
My life

Giving my
Life weight

soul clappin’ pupusas
like a
Church tambourine

Pupusa lady, with her
Pupusa life
Pupusa heart
Pupusa soul

Flattening, shaping

Proving that the
World is

Pupusa lady, on
16th street, whose
Hands wrap, fold
And hold the
World together

Hands that clap
And sometimes
Slap when needed

Just to make
Sure everything
Is kept in line

When necessary
