Caribbean View

Caribbean View

Calms before
storms, we could
prepare,
you might
well think.
But storms
of hellfire
seem these days,
to catch us
by surprise.

From up
in mountains,
up winding roads
nobody wants
to climb.
There is
no rest.
Small diesel
engine drives
a crowded bus.

No value,
in these
islands,
but scenery
and weather,
it’s so warm.
So tourists
come.
And on this
stormy day,
things changed
a bit.

No room
left among
our luggage
for a friend
or one
who may
one day
become
a friend.
Sometimes
it’s sad
to be one
left behind.
