Moon Landings

Watching the moon landings
at Meme's house

Meme's mother
shaking her head

and saying son mentiras
puras mentiras

pure lies she said
convinced of the purity I guess

Don Goyo
Meme's father

did not say a word
I don't know

if he believed
the moon landings

were real
or not

meanwhile the astronauts
were planting the American flag

on somebody else's
land again
