Candy on My Tongue/Lengua Mi Piruli

The terms “lengua” or “tongue” refer to both my taste organ and spoken languages. Both of my cultures/tongues/homelands are conceived here as a candied skull, consumed by licks. It all becomes memory and ephemeral.

I wonder if language and even national identities are vanity.
