People in other countries get to buy
their exotic food at open-air bazaars
where dark-eyed lovers hold hands
in romance languages.
I’ve never been to where the erotics of spices
make me jealous like tango.
There’s so much culture and sunshine:
the women wear red
and don’t have to shave to feel beautiful.
Common life can be this sexy
even in the barrios and jungle-vine cities
if there is love.
