    Default Homage to Holy Frijoles (CTG)










    Homage to Holy Frijoles

    I'm in Hampden to pick up our fajitas
    because Holy Frijoles won't deliver,
    they’re one of those go-to-places for
    burritos, chimichangas, refried beans.

    I'm waiting for them to finalize the order,
    wonder if I should chug a beer at the bar,
    a cool Dos Equis, Corona with wedge of lime
    but instead I skulk around back with my cell-

    phone camera, still with your ABBA CD ringing
    in my ears (SOS!) that I heard on the drive over:
    imagine I'm decked in turquoise spandex
    and platform boots as I photograph detritus

    left from the snow -- a crushed Bud can, myriad
    cigarette butts and some mysterious eye graffiti
    by the sign where the bank threatens to tow my car.
    Finally, stroll back down the side of Frijoles, snap


    ADVERTISING




    the pictographs on the wall of the Aztecs
    who used to populate Hampden centuries ago.

    * Hampden is a working class area of Baltimore
    maybe a bit akin to Wavertree in some respects.
    It has recently become yuppified with trendy
    restaurants, clothing boutiques, antique stores.
    The neighborhood is a favorite place of movie
    maker John Waters and he and I live about the
    same distance from the place.
