Bar & Mezcaleria

Windsor, California

— “Un paso atrás ni para agarrar vuelo”, El Gallo Negro.
[A step back not even to gain impulse]

El Gallo Negro

Everyone in town called him ‘El Gallo Negro.’

Bravest rooster on the block.

His eyes and feathers were black as polished onyx stones.

Fear moved him forward; never looked back.

Walked towards danger with absolute confidence.

Not a wall. Not a cage. Nor the uncertain would stop him.
