Travelers Welcome

Friday, April 29, 2011


by Andy Slade

By the flicker of an old paraffin lamp
In a well-used tent, on a moonlit hill
You gave in to cheap, warm beer
Fine food and a few African lies.

Your pale skin stretched and turned
Releasing a truth, you whispered
“If you say anything now, I'll believe it”
I said yes.
