The twanging and tinkling
of guitars surrounded us
with the pungent aroma
of California grapes—
the moon was tawny and obese
and the stars hung low,
glowing like Japanese lanterns;
you kissed me
and whispered in my ear,
“Mañana.” The word to me
was dulcet as the
melodious music of guitars.
“‘Everything’ll be all right tomorrow’,”
you promised.
“Mañana,” I repeated,
as the guitars strummed in agreement.
