I squeeze the package and my mouth waters

like Pavlov's dog to the bell

– a hint of melon? a chocolate whiff? –

my nose pretends to be able to tell

but my close focus is distracted

by the piece of cheese I'm eating

and a sudden waft indoors of wet clay

my mind's eye is patterned with woven fajas

swaddled babies, marimba and zampona groups

in summer markets around the world

and I don't know where I put the grinder.

Day 28 Guatemala

I can be seduced by packaging.
