“But You Don’t Speak Spanish”, she said.

“Date Two”

Before after dinner coffee
between Tecate and Tequila
I would translate for Susan
the Spanish songs playing

I told her

unlike the menu
this music is
more mix-tape
a mistake to parse
verse or individual song

and the lyrics suggest
a libretto that goes on forever
could take weeks,
months
even years,
Susan…
to truly appreciate
