Two Super Tacos with Tongue

I write this while you order 

three cheese enchiladas 

in green sauce, two super tacos 

with tongue. You tell me pago 

casho in this thing we speak 

since we’ve been working from 

our living & bedroom. I’ve got a chair 

with wheels that spins. You have 

a desk with buttons you can push 

to make it go up, down.
