My first sale
The very beginning
Of my career as
A trader
Was an omen
Definitely a sign
I sold a black pistol
To a Mariachi

Those efforts
Brought more food

The soundtrack
Is important
John Lee Hooker
Caused the most attention

Somewhere I read
That Cesar Vallejo
Used to collect bottles
To make ends meet

George Foreman says
That you need to watch
Every frog skin

It’s kind fun
Because when
The stereo played
Besame Mucho
The customers
Began to approach
The merchandise
With a smile
Splattered on
On their faces

Then the harp
And the flute
Reeled them in
It was like fishing
Without water
