Cuban Red

By BF/ Featured Writer

I’ve been following
your smoke,
hoping to see you
start a fire.

But I no longer
feel irie;
you were no
Lucky Dube afterall.

I know I’ve lost you
but I can’t let go
of your scent.

Thoughts that linger
in the living room
of my mind,
sit slouched on
the three sitter,
legs stretched out
on the centre table,
making a meal
of my lungs
as they long for you.

Your burnt sticks
are still stuck_in my mind;
that socks!

They make my eyes
glow redder
than the rage
I feel within.

Now
I’m willing to trade
my anger
for a 100 (s)cents,
dollar per_fume.
