Cinco de Mayo

the rain is letting up

another soldier died

and the news hardly acknowledged

this young life lost

taken

stolen by a war that began

when he was in elementary school

I’ll have another beer

Corona

then a margarita

salt and lime

and a cigar

then I’ll try to find

a beautiful Señorita

to teach me how to dance salsa

and tell me everything will be okay
