Watching Other Tourists in Moraira

I like to live in comfort and feel foreign
so I’m most at home when I sojourn in Spain
as a tourist with few language skills to lean on.

A man with a plastic bag clasped in his hand
picks up the dog-doo that his pet puts down.

He puffs his cheeks, the man does, then he gazes
at La Monde in the Spanish edition till his wife comes out

of the Boutique de la Prensa and it’s time
to look for lunch and maybe wash his hands.
