Sunny Morning

Behind us, flashes of car windshields
off the streets, students
awaiting plates of food.

We float conversation
while the sky encircles us
without a cloud.

Behind the backdrop
of bright blue diner curtains,
stars swerve in daytime arcs.

I sip ice tea. Sali twirls
her hair in knots and swirls,
weaving a story with her hands,

each word a tuft of hair–
Strands of yellow, russet,
tell me where to go today

in syllables intricate and foreign
as the dances
of the summer bees.
