12PM

“Los platos ma’ bueno’ son los de tu espaldarazo
Los platos ma’ bueno’ son a las 12PM
cuando el sol se prende en fogón
Los platos ma’ bueno’ son
bueno ese arroz
moros y cristianos
y esa lengua que la bautiza
cuando tiene la frente sudando
a repollo
lejos de su tierra.”

“The best dishes are the ones from your
backing
The best dishes are at 12PM
when the sun catches on fire
The best dishes are the good ones
that good rice
Moors and Christians
and that tongue that baptizes
when the forehead is sweating
cabbage
far from home.”

—F.P.
