. . . And the Fiestas continue!
As nighttime covers the land and the church bells call out to the moon, visitors trickle in one by one, until the road to the next taco stand or game booth becomes an obstacle course.
Fair rides light up and swirl in the night haze of dust and remnant heat,
Children run between legs and around lawn chairs, tagging and chasing one another,
Teenagers dress in their chic best, hoping to catch some cutie’s eye,
And the band plays on
just as loud for those who listen as for those who don’t.
This is the San Lorenzo Kermés Part Dos.
This is a twinkle and a flash.
This is a peek at life.
