Where everyone’s from South Dakota

Except my neighbors, Jim and Rhoda.

 

Where anytime you hear a WOOF!

You cast your gaze upon a roof.

 

Where gringos mangle Spanish I--

No tengo dance—forgive the pun.

 

Where burros saben mas que tu,

And several even sound like you.

 

Where anytime you might request a

Rain check from the next fiesta.

 

Where prior to shopping please arrange

To have a pocketful of change.

 

Where sidewalks, curbs, and cobblestones

Conspire to break your footsy bones.

 

Where breezes blowing off the lake

Invite retirement for their sake.

 

Where Señor Tope reigns supreme.

“Slow down,” he says. “Enjoy the dream.”

 

Where tethered horses congregate

And make the hapless autos wait.

 

Where roosters, egrets, hummingbirds

Can leave you at a loss for words.

 

Where Shakespeare names like Flavio,

Aurora, and Octavio

Are pleasantly simpatico.
