fake stucco mixed use, e. cesar chavez

bones whitened, time--
cracking pressure above

Unburied shoveled up
ground into New Building

“authentic east first street”
gut wall-to-wall, midrise

siren on melted asphalt
keep some from others

and we walked there so long!
las cazuelas tacos sign bright

and we walked on cesar chavez!
not east first amnesia:

bones whiten with time
lit by street-sweeping neon

but the street is cesar chavez
shout power! sanctify!
with your feet
