Dancehall

I miss the bass, the wining, the grinding and grinding, warm breasts pressed against my adolescent chest – the melodies of youth. We sang along to an English I rarely hear – replaced by poor mimicry: the fantasy of minds who’ve never seen the Atlantic. Rarely smoked; always carried a lighter – anxious for the moment our host asked us to illuminate the sky. When I hear these melodies I feel close to home – enraptured by passion, familiar voices call me.
