Picnic In San Fernando

She lays the white cloth 
on the ground of grass
and opens the cans of coke
with gentle flicks

On a little narra table 
she sets the plates 
each with three hanging rice, 
and a quarter of lechon

While he broils ten sticks
of barbecue on the grill
wiping his sweat as they 
trickle down to his cheeks

Smiles paint the little faces
of their children running against 
the count of hide and seek
with the other kids in the plaza

as the embers dry to the cooling sun
she calls them all to gather round
hands washed, faces flashing
they say a little prayer 
before partaking 
from the small banquet of love
