Yo comía en caldero

I spent my childhood eating straight from the pot
I used to get home from school
and throw the rice into the meat sauce
and then into the beans sauce
and lick my fingers too
So Mamatita used to say
that the day of my wedding
there was gonna be a rainfall.

That was a long time ago
in Bonao
now I live in New York
I am still single
I am required to use plates and fork
I have to eat carefully not to stain my tie
and outside there is never a brown horse
under the shade of a mango tree.

(From Monday Street)
