The old black man downed a shot of Don Q.
The light-skinned grandson entered the bar.

The old black man downed a shot of Bacardí.
“Hail Mary, mother of God, full of grace!”

The grandfather kissed his grandson’s cheek
and grazed him with a beard of age and sandpaper.
God bless Don Q and Bacardí rums.
