Tradition!

For several years I have celebrated Day of the Dead by writing “cavaleras literarias.” Some people write poems for loved ones, but another tradition is to write humorous “tombstones.” I write the latter–or try to. Hope you enjoy!

He grabbed a second warm cider–
An excuse to sit down beside her.
But he wanted to die
Hearing Miss Muffet reply
“I’d rather go sit by the spider.”
