Rainy season brings
corn planted empty lots
milpa sprouting fast
soon seven feet tall
ears of seed, elote
hair flowing cabello
then boiling water
cobs cooked, eaten
with melted butter
salt, sal a tu gusto
or dried mazorca
to grind into masa
for tortillas con queso
picadillo de papas
chile or fresh natilla.
