Strawberry agua,

She says,

So proud to have learnt

That snippet of Spanish

Grinning at me, at the host,

At the big glass dispenser

Packed with glossy red fruit

Chilled water

Little paper cups

Take as much as you want.

Sí, agua de fresa

I agree

Not correcting



Strawberry agua

She insists

And if everyone knows what she means,

Or if one person does

Or none, but she’s happy…

Why not?
