This 32-page chapbook contains eight poems by Vincent Cooper and is illustrated with eight black & white photographs by Desireé Escobedo. From the poem “Pulse”: “These streets have no pulse/Even the overweight, disease-ridden prostitute/on the corner of Guadalupe and Zarzamora/is struggling to continue on this Saturday night/flapping her chanclas while walking back and forth/attempting to look sane and nonchalant for the officer/driving by.” In the poem “Sandía” Cooper writes: “ Pelón, Chato and me/waking up to burning bacon/and eggs sizzling in a pan/at the house on Potosí St./A shirtless uncle is singing /Grandma is wrapping his tacos/in a brown bag/He puts them in his pocket/as he shuffles off/He was our Robin Hood on heroin.”
