CUBA ©evelyn voigt Dec 2014 
She sashays beside me into the night. 
Sassy.
Her withered lips mouth the words to a love song
that spills -Havana style – from a nearby bar
amid dance and laughter.
Her turquoise tank top strains 
against once impressive breasts
and invites, in giant letters of neon green,
“KISS ME!”
 
She personifies my romantic Cuba.
That gutsy little island 
with finger raised
amid crumbling icons of colonial fists:
 
“KISS ME!”
 
So Cuban. So American.
Sometime foe. Sometime friend.  
In fight but never flight.
And either way:
 
“KISS ME!”
