A sea of humanity
Taquerias and street food
Dance with la zona rosa
Cheap drinks, clubs, and dates
Nights in the Roma Section
That balcony where I smoked
So many cheap Camels
Mezcal and tequila energizing and enervating
Plazas full of beauty and poverty
People in rags begging for my foreign capital
Beautiful smiles and late night conversation
A city of dreams and expectation and brutal disappointment
The embassy—my embassy—a fortress of frigid indifference
To the human need and desperation
My second city
With its trains snaking underbelly
Its magic subterranean
