look up any word, like donkey punch:
A Spanish word meaning to "raise this thing to God's face" and to sing quite literally "praise to this."
Abuela Claudia had simple pleasures.
She sang the praises of things we ignore:
Glass Coke bottles, bread crumbs, a sky full of stars.
She cherished these things.
She'd say "Alabanza."
