Dear Juan Felipe from Diego

March 29, 2016

Dear Juan Felipe,

I very much liked the way you wrote your poem. The reason why I liked it is because when you said, “a laboring red papaya truck awaits.” It reminded me of a story my grandfather told me when he was young. There was a truck with sodas like Jarritos and he would hitch a ride and grab a drink. I was wondering if this is a narrative poem? If it is, what was the plot? Also the descriptions, what do they mean?
