Every November that comes, Grandma brings us as always, stories, surprises. Chopped papers with a thousand skulls. Sweetened pink bread and strawberry atole. And huge bunches of flowers from the dead. Some comales, tortillas, avocado, cobalt, ... also chocolates. Oranges, bananas ...
Later, sitting next to the grandmother, we all listen to her skulls, which tell the life of skeletons and their tales of the dead make us laugh. In a cemetery an orchestra played because all the dead were partying. The ladies in skirts, the men in black, wore a tie with a jacket and hat.
The orchestra played guarachas, boleros, rancheras and dances with a rumbero rhythm. Two dead danced a sad bolero but they got tangled up in their skeletons. The dead fly up to the sky. Could it be that clouds are made of bones? The afternoon ends, he takes the verses, he feels the perfume of incense in the air.
The sails draw on the pavement roads that cross to cemeteries. With music and flowers and food, in many pantheons there is a feast of the dead. The grandmother will come with all her stories and will make a new altar for the Day of the Dead.
