Last Meal

If everything is going down
Shuddering down to fiery end
If everything is over now
I'd like
For my last meal
A nice seafood dinner.

Nothing fancy
Well, nothing too fancy
Just some crab or lobster
Or (if that's not quite affordable)
Some langostinos
To commemorate my presence on this earth.

But in case that's not possible either
(If, for example,
The seas have already risen above our heads
Or receded
Down below our awareness)

Well, I'd mostly just like
For us to share a meal.
Something from the sea would be nice
But anything will do

Just please
At the end
Hold my hand

Día Festivo

Un tazón se ofrece rellenos
Solamente en tiempos amenos
Que yo siempre les hallo--
¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
¿Tradiciones? Problemas ajenos.

O, a bowl offers stuffing's nutritions
Just in special-occasion conditions
Which I often purvey--
Happy fifth day of May!
Someone else can take care of traditions.
