Poetry: Café Cubano


Havana, Cuba

Your skin is rich freshly

pressed

coffee beans

with soft mahogany hues

kissed by sun beams.


Your lips are cane sugar,

perfect

to the taste

eyes linger on my hips

the color of nutmeg.


I'd take you in for the morning

rejuvenate

my energy

or even better for dessert,

though dangerous before sleep.


Your love is bitter

strong

but still my heart beats

my preference is a love scorching hot,

on the tip of my tongue it stings.
