Hot Mixtures

a candle’s flame moves
in the breeze from the window –
her gaze lowers

the sizzling dish
is presented, white chicken –
salsa, red and green

a margarita
wide mouthed, salted and chilled –
her laughter rises

silverware moonlit
stands out against the red cloth –
a knife is dropped 

Mexican coffee
arrives a two tone mixture –
too hot to handle
