Fish Tacos

I do not believe that fish tacos count as food. Food is something meant to satisfy hunger, prevent starvation and perhaps lower the crime rate. Fish tacos is something that you eat with a Mexican beer late in the afternoon while seeking to avoid reflecting on the contraries of existence so beloved by Blake and Octavio Paz. Once, in Minnesota, I saw an elderly person order a fish taco with a Canadian beer. I thought to myself, ” Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.” I have not returned to Minnesota for four decades. Leave well enough alone, my sainted mother always said.
