The machete falls.
He trims off the top.
He flattens the bottom.
A deft twist and out pops a plug.
We pour coconut water into a travel mug
A peso, a smile,
and he pushes the coconut laden wheelbarrow
to the next tourist,
the next peso and smile.
Took me right back to the patio by the beach watching him open up a coconut for me! It was nice to get to know you on the beach!
I still think I came home too soon! lol.
