My Cinco de Mayo

My Cinco is sunshine and huge feathered serpents tickling the morning sky

Kiddie parades and the Mexican Hat Dance!
“Watcha! You did that wrong!”
“It’s OK, it’s just a BIG FLOPPY HAT”

The School Assembly
“JESSE, WE NEED YOU TO READ THIS TO THE SCHOOL BECAUSE, UM, YOU’RE BROWN.”

but i was born in el sereno and my spanish isn’t that good

“IT DOESN’T MATTER, JUST PRACTICE AND YOU’LL DO FINE!”

Flashforward to college ———- It wasn’t all a flash

More dancing!
(Scene: Internal : Stanford University, Ballet Folklorico)
“Gotta wear that bull headdress and hit my mark on the stage”
“Oye, the mariachis are all drunk!”

“Here I gooooooooo!”

[repeat]

(Scene: External: Streets of Downtown Denver)

BounceBounceBounce Following a mayoral candidate down Cinco de Mayo parade route. OMG, this is crazy! Gotta keep the camera steady so I can get at least some footage…….Why the hell is he running so fast? Thank God for adrenaline!!

Darkness falls fast like the last Corona in the bucket.
I hope the Mayas are wrong. I want more than 3 more Cincos…………….

    • Thanks tomachfive, I was going to use a regular poem format but it wasn’t conveying the flashback-ness of it all. ~Jesse
