la boca    he calls her at ten
she finds it: the cake box tied in red & white string

at eleven on the bus through the main vein of the city
or is it an artery? inside the box

each checked tablecloth is waterproof wipe clean after diners leave
in a metal drawer stenciled with holes

she didnít ask whatís inside
how many sheets of foil are left

if he tells her what will happen next she already knows
the kitchen at close mopped with dirty water

on a train under the city
between two languages
