Mi Casa

I was the minority.
I'm not sure if I was welcome or not,
their dark faces, their gleaming beautiful white teeth,
their black black hair
they are stunning and glorious in their blackness
and I am white.
I indulged in
Grilled shrimp perched on a blanket of avocade covering a plantain bed.
If I could eat that every day, I'd be the happy minority
instead of Ceasar salad in a white bar with a $12 glass of wine
I went back there tonight
and I brought my white friends
we were the minorities
and I ate grilled shrimp perched on a blanket of avocado covering a plantain bed
I was happy.
