Calypso

Calypso
She made love to all the little fishes, slipping them through her fingers

From mi yeye deh a mi knee she sang to all the black nosed  creatures
Learning their names by hearing their voices, what can this un do? Fo mi?

Slow tings burnin’
Hot tides breakin’ on science
Obeah thickets

Solemnity
As he walked toward her
As if he would govern
Her ownliness, her balm yard

Fo’  cri! She laugh out loud
Dis one tink he Cortez !
