One of the great joys of being a poet, is that images appear and turn themselves into rhymes. Especially at a restaurant in Newport Beach known as the Wild Taco. Small and popular restaurant with a patio way too small; but with service that ramps and amps and does not stall. Count yourself lucky if Madison is on duty to wait on your table. A poem follows  on sharing a table with a family of four. Great restaurant. good values, and service to the max---Wild Taco  
The world may be in a state of total shockos
But near the waters as the fog prepares to come in, life is great at the Wild Taco
In a world of hurried cars speeding by concrete
where eyes of strangers you would never want to greet
On a patio outside watching a slowly setting sun
How humans reaching out beyond the fire seeing a bond that must have begun
Not quite a Basque restaurant with plates of food as a common to faire
But a sense of we are all humans with space we must share
Water may be the universal solvent but so is among strangers a shared table
One nation, united in great deeds, a reality not some hoped for fable
