Cold War Dreams

I want to go to Cuba
and read some Graham Greene
and smoke cigars
upon the shore
with Russian spies
in linen suits
with perfectly
cultured
home county accents
and pretend
we’re all on business trips
travellers
in ladies undergarments
the disingenuous civility
making for the perfect
Caribbean evening
in 1956.
