THROWBACK THURSDAY: Paletas Y Patínes



PALETAS Y PATÍNES

by Ezzy Languzzi 

Paletas
Patínes
Veranos at home
Paletas
Patínes
We were never alone

Paletas
Patínes
Hermanitas
We played
Each other’s company
Through the heat of the day

Tamarindo
Horchata
Jamaica
Limón
Paletas de jugo
Chilled us to the bone

Side by side on the curb
Our futures unknown
Paletas
Patínes
We longed to be grown

The butcher
The workers
The gang members, too
Watched as we skated
Through
The afternoon
