Little Apples of Sanlúcar*
Anthony Beal, American poet

Good evening, my longtime friend.
Come shake my hand
In that secret way nearly as old as us.
Sit with me and enjoy this salty air.
Once more let us relive past struggles and losses;
Let us catch and release brief glimpses of youth.
We’ll eat them with nuts and olives.
We’ll drink them with jamón and fruits de mer,
Then lift our glasses of acquired wisdom
To Pedro and surrounding shores
Where ancient horses wear their colors with pride.
We’ll go down dry, as uncounted years foretold.
We’ll rise with mouths full of chamomile,
Feet rooted to the ground
In the boots of our grandfathers,
And dance fleeting cante jondos
Like the new old men we have become;
Blood brothers,
As filled with stars as the night above.
