  • I remember squishing in next to Kelly

    on the dirty black floor of the white Toyota Hi-Ace Van.

    I remember the acrid chili pepper smell of fresh coffee beans
    drying on the straight reflective lines on the road.

    I remember getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of my mouth
    and washing it down with fizzy stingy coca cola before
    running to play hide and seek on the unprotected Mayan ruin
    and the slap of my sandals against the stone.

    I do not remember the hydroelectric plant.
