art A Café in Evora was inspired during a trip to Portugal in 1993 where I viewed
the old markets and people in their natural settings. The poem is original and
is meant to accompany the painting by the same name. The painting and poem depict
a personal experience while lunching in Evora, Portugal.

Music: Abril em Portugal

A Café in Evora Portugal

Old men from Evora sat around a café table
Talking about when they were young and able
We saw the young blond-woman arrive
And suddenly the conversations came alive
Questions of what and how she was doing
What or whom she was pursuing
She had in tow a very young boy
Which to all was a source of apparent joy
They encouraged him then and there to take a pee
Which we watched while drinking our tea
