Caribbean poetry, Jean Binta Breeze

lovin wasn easy

lovin wasn easy all de time

but nat easy
some a de time...

...wasn easy at all

eena de tear up tent
a we blanket

we use to watch mawnin star
rise
troo de hole
inna de bamboo shack

an now
sometimes
ah sad
wen a look back  - Jean Binta Breeze
