The restaurant is teeming.
While we eat
we recall
a certain divine intervention.
Two gods and a goddess
were required
to placate the Erinnyes.
He invoked them
with a gesture of entreaty.
They interceded
when the hunted man
stopped fleeing.
Three deities.
Without saying so
I think:
perhaps we
don’t need so much.

Rafael Cadenas
Translated by Rowena Hill
