Has The Coquito Been Made Yet?

Filed under: Food, Poetry — migueltio @ 9:29 am

A cold evening
after a long
tiring day of many
long tiring assignments
many coworkers in
small confinements
finally arriving home
she thinks of one thing,
“Has the coquito been made yet?”

Spending many hours
in cold cutting winds
traversing from storefront
to yet another despotic
storefront collecting donations
collecting toys hoping to
fulfill others’ Christmas joys
one thing savors in his dream filled mind,
“Has the coquito been made yet?”

Long learning days in school
those long allotted days of
December that seem like
that feel like a
record setting eternity
before Christmas arrives
the best day of their lives
they ask mom when getting home,
“Has the coquito been made yet?”

A busy time for
wishing a busy
season for makers
of wishes to come
true be it Santa
or Los Reyes no matter
who when they visit a home
one question they pursue,
“HAS THE COQUITO BEEN MADE YET?”
