Cuban Love - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

Sweet gold of
The sun in her smile
The scent of rum and sea
Her wave-tossed hair tangled by
The breath of Spain
Her back arched, sweat soaked and
Glistening under
An African sun
Taino heat rises through her
Her body sways, the trunk of a palm that
Quivers with salsa rhythms
Xango hides
The forest is
Tobacco deep dense with
Mulatto leaves to cover our sin
