Cecilio’s House

cecilio comes to me in a dream
and asks

if I will help him
paint his house

of course amigo
I tell him

we paint all day
and all night

we paint for a week straight
we paint all month

I tell him
amigo, you sure have a big house

he says
reyes, the house of poetry is big

and I doubt
we’ll ever finish painting it
