  2. Things that have been on my mind a lot lately.

    The place I am in my life compared to the place I hoped to be by now are so vastly different that I have taken to not thinking about the progress I’ve made so far. I’m not unhappy necessarily and I guess I don’t hate myself for things or anything really. I’m not even so much down but sometimes I think about it all and I just get a little sad inside and feel just a bit lost. I’ve been blessed to have certain amazing people in my life who seem to think I have potential for something, whatever hell that is, but just something more than my current situation and i’m just tired of letting them all down.

    Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)

    Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.

  5. Stupid America


    stupid america, see that chicano 
    with a big knife 
    in his steady hand 
    he doesn’t want to knife you 
    he wants to sit on a bench 
    and carve christ figures 
    but you won’t let him.

    stupid america, hear that chicano 
    shouting curses on the street 
    he is a poet 
    without paper and pencil 
    and since he cannot write 
    he will explode.

    stupid america, remember that chicanito 
    flunking math and english 
    he is the picasso 
    of your western states 
    but he will die 
    with one thousand masterpieces 
    hanging only from his mind

    -Abelardo Delgado
