Avenida de Mundo

Avenida de Mundo

(what a world!)

has a pulse, amigo

this asphalt is alive—

skaters are fearless

in the no helmet zone

long boards, Penny’s

carrying their surfboards

slingshot behind racing

bicycles, rusty Beetles

and the shaggy beach horses


there are tables along the

Avenida de Mundo

(what a world!)

grab an espresso

or a ceviche taco

and watch the mongrel mayhem

in the no leash zone

the free dog, surf dog, always moving

not fixed dog

San Pancho dog

gotta be heaven for a dog

dog street


from Federal Highway 200

to the Playa San Pancho

Avenida de Mundo

(what a world!)

has all you need, amiga

good food, wine, musica

the dreaded hippie

the surfing turista

in the who cares zone

it’s a one-stop street

in bare feet—

on the Avenida de Mundo
