Reposting a favourite of mine from years ago when I used to travel there.

Another winter day ends in Buenos Aries


Damp and chilled the street contracts
As dusk has slid in fluid tango steps to
Oil slicked night on Avenida de Mayo
Local beef and potatoes in steaming
Windows with heavy Malbec 

Aproned waiters surreptitiously sipping
Mate with supercilious glances watch
Sodden walkers hunched against a wet
Woolen fog while homeless men in shadows
Sleep with their dogs and dream of both
