Three Amigos


They stood off center of the locker room floor
no more but no less than three:
beside an open locker door
dressing and chatting leisurely,
amongst themselves and laughing.
'Manana, ' one said, 'something, something, mas tiempo'
which, translated, seemed to mean
'Tomorrow, there will be more weather, '
To which I silently agreed-
And silently agreed.

On, they chattered on,
as I pulled off my socks, oblivious of me,
One heading on to work
'Trabajo' he explained 'dinero'
Another, to see his kid-
'a la casa de mi hijo, ' he explained,
A third was simply 'free'-
'Often a better way to be', he claimed,
To which I silently agreed-
And silently agreed.
