Me Flash Talking ?


Tuesday nights here at the Poet’s Passage on Calle Cruz they have an open-mike — so I’m told.  I have to get creative if I’m  going to get the word out that Will Gray’s looking for Maria Fuentes.  There’s a chance she might come to a poetry reading here, but if she isn’t here tomorrow night, I think I’ll stand up and slam anyway:  Say something poetic to the locals and interest them in my quest.

Fast-talking street-walking man that I am / I’ve got to find my woman if I’m going to jam / She’s my reason for breathin’ and hangin’ here / When I stay up late and can’t find a beer / I look at the sky and wonder what I ate / ‘Cause she’s stickin’ in my belly like a tummy ache. / Walking ‘round here a week, and no one knows, / who I am, what I need, or how the wind blows.

I assume the show’s in Spanish, so I’m practicing.

Fast-hablando del hombre de la calle-a pie que soy / Tengo que encontrar a mi mujer si me voy a atascar/ Ella es mi razón de breathin’ y Hangin’ aquí / Cuando me quedo hasta tarde y no puedo encontrar una cerveza / Me miro al cielo y me pregunto lo que comía / Porque ella es stickin’ en mi vientre como un dolor de barriga. / Caminar por aquí una semana, y nadie sabe, / lo que soy, lo que necesito, o cómo sopla el viento.

I have NO IDEA how this is going to play tomorrow night.  Want to talk me out of it?
