    My Cuban Lover

                       Once I had a Cuban lover,
                                     or would be lover should I say
                                  black as the ace of spades
                       with Spanish accent
                                      and hot, dark blood in his veins,
                                                                   like rum.
                       He told dark, dark tales
                                              of life in Cuban prisons
                                                              and  Mexican jails
                                             where they took him out at night to point a pistol at his head.
                       He played Othello once
                                   on a Havana stage
                                            my Othello,
                       and he was brave and strong
                                                         like  panther   
                       His laughter
                                       fired my soul like gunpowder
                                              and the touch of his skin
                       sent  lava  through my veins
                                  never a kiss
                       never a tryst
                                     for he was married you see, my Othello,
                       and he loved Desdemona

    I had a Cuban sandwich once.  Not nearly as exciting as your story though.  Nice work. Snap snap.
