Memories From Havana
(A Poem Honoring A Family's Flight From Cuba)

From The Lands Of Green And Blue
A Family Contemplates Redemption

They Went Far And Fell Close
Leaving The Black Past Behind

Trees From The Garden Window
Talk Of Their Peril, Fruit Soured

In Short Havana Trousers They Sang
Crossing Waters Toward Hasty Sunset

Mother Cuba Mourns Her Loss
Gone Are Your Many Children
