written for "A Little Bit of Poetry" contest----
|La Paloma Blanca
Erotic vagrancy perfumes Sunday breakfast
at La Paloma Blanca
remnants of last night's sins
expiated with expresso and menudo.
Lust lingers in the air.
Our Lady of Guadalupe watches as
I lick guava jelly from your lips
and we kiss over strong, sweet Cuban coffee.
I remember how it is
to be sixteen again.
