Joseph Rios – In the Beginning

Joseph Rios

In the Beginning 

For Alana

I lived in a windowless room 
above a nightclub in Downtown LA.
Afterhours we would dance 
with the music loud, loud 
as the the colored lights
we bathed in until it was 
time to visit the Pantry 
and spin on the chairs 
watching the cooks 
make French Toast 
in Dodgers caps
until even the coffee 
couldn’t keep us awake.
