Sweet Reverie

Reverie with glittering lights
shimmering turquoise,
blazers…. finesse, and pink of night.

Cognac drenched lips
sweet whispers of Havana
with hand rolled tips, leaving
swirls of Hemingway in the air.

Succulent dreams
taste between golden seams
these delectable treats
with the Cuban beats…
trumpet his Armstrong Jazz.

Comfortable, in his sweet reverie.
