The sound of rolling tongues,
behind heavy full lips
are no longer foreign to me.
The words come easily from friends
sitting around my kitchen table
with clear dark brown and caramel eyes
short stylish haircuts and delicate perfume
pepino con limon y sal
ummmm my favorite hot day appetizer,
with a glass of chilled citrus filled sangria
cucumber with lemon and salt, sometimes a bit of Tabasco,
red wine with a splash of spiced rum, oranges and limes, SALUD!
Pupusas staying warm in the oven,
melted cheese, squash, and homemade frijoles,
mingled about conversation: men, classes, food, travel.
I’m warm, light headed and happy:
gracias for being
mis bellas amigas Claudita
