Two Tacos

Two Tacos

A Poem by Summer Emswiler
"

Be kind.

"

I drove forty-five minutes

No traffic 

To get to college.

I used to stop by a little hole in the wall Mexican place

And get two tacos.

By the time I got to main street

There would be so many hungry souls.

I didn't make much.

But not much is more than nothing.

I would ask if they wanted hot sauce.

Give them a water bottle.

And go on my day.

They always knew somehow.

I don't know if word got around

That I always got two tacos

One for me

One for you

Whoever ‘you’ was that day.

This idea was so smart! I love the way it's written and I especially loved the last line; 'Whoever 'you' was that day.' If this is an act of kindness you've really done, then that's so, so wonderful. I could read this piece over and over, such a wonderful piece. I also have to say, hole-in-the-wall Mexican places, are often the best ones! Haha, thank you for sharing. (:
