Long line for icecream

Eyes are full with expectation.

All lines are long here,

Even Cubans can afford Time and sun,

Basking in warmth,

Softened with icecream.

Stomachs cool with the cheapest light fluff,

White like the linen worn without

A crease through the heavy

Diesel fumes, past spitting hot-dog stands.
