played the song twice..............."What is it?" he asked.
preoccupied with the application........
his gaze lingered................................"Someone's notebook. It's about food," I said.
brown grass on the hills..."Maybe a restaurant critic."
the holes in the cactus..............
blood stains.............."A restaurant critic? With that disgusting looking clipboard?
Alvarado salt river....................Throw it away."
low flying planes............. the words that were written in the painting.... strewing meat and sauce in a wide circle........ the smell of the leather couch...... I could almost feel his hands..................... hand carved napkin rings......................... sopapillas...................... mustard colored tiles............... the long walk into town.................. the sound that the lizards made..............
