In Puerto Rican Skies

Kind faces smiling,

Nodding politely at words

They don’t seem to understand,


Show me pictures

Showing the richness

Of a faraway distant land,


Multicoloured motor cars,

Brown apartments rising high

In Puerto Rican skies.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

In Puerto Rican Skies dates from 2015, while having been based on an autobiographical song, relating to incidents from my childhood, written at the age of 18 for one of the first in a series of self-made cassette albums, if you can call them that. London, aged 18 (image).
