Cilantro Mantra

She delivers
guacamole
from a old
beater cop
car daily.

Half-lidded
headlamps
and missing
hubcaps.

Spinning
from café
to deli to
restaurant
with tubs
of her
dip.

Recently
split, her
old man left
her for a

Road worker—
the ones
who flag
you.

Now she’s
alone with
just her
avocados
and this
old B&W
prowler.
