I hear my mom waking me up
Pork shoulder sizzling
Smelling the cookies,
three leche cake
Tasting the sweet sweet
pots and pans
in the kitchen
the glittery red bows

crying and crying
I can't wait any longer
where are you

the summer our lips met, we were
two bright celestial bodies. sprawling constellations
pulsed tightly above our heads and
i knew them like the way i memorized
the galaxies that coursed through your upturned palms.
you still cannot fathom why, but
please know this:
our entangled fingers held
every nook and cranny of the milky way.
and i could have sworn

everyone knows the tide...
