So here we go again
the have and have dots
the have and have nots
the have and have coms
com for commerce
of course
but also but also
el que come y no convida
tiene un sapo en la barriga
my mother’s voice
in the gentleness of the kitchen
in the village by the parkway
in Parkway Village by the Parkway
her voice in Spanish
in the gentleness of the kitchen
where the family used to eat
to eat comer
comer in Spanish comer is to eat
in Spanish
el que come y no convida
if you eat and do not share
a toad will grow inside inside
a toad will grow
still there so many years later
her voice across time
and the toad
the toad still growing
here we go again
who eats
