Watching the Boys at Plaza de Armas

The boys sell water and fresh juice out of shopping carts
Lined in plastic filled with ice
Aguaguagua Jugojugojugo
Their words blend together
Passersby stop to talk to eat some of the ice
They rub it on their arms and hands
One seller stands by his cart his wife and daughter
Sit nearby the child sips a coke and waves
A quick whistle rings out and the boys move
Carts covered and pulled away
The father hurries deeper into the park with his cart
The girls stays with her mama and stroller
Starts to cry in his absence
Her mama holds her hands her another coke
She stops crying after the police on horseback pass
And he returned with his cart
Aguaguagua Jugojugojugo
