never even left the compound

she went to Haiti

never left the compound

was told clear

its dirty & dangerous out there

never met the people

unless they were serving

the all-inclusive drinks

three hots & cleaning the room

saying yes ma’am

as all she wanted was warmth

a place to do nothing

recharge the batteries y’know?

no wish to explore the culture

understand the island of Hispaniola

the spirit of Erzulie Freda

had no chance to enter

the idea of ton tons meant nothing

& the plane home was great

a holiday right?
