The Water Taxi Arrives (Caye Caulker Chronicles Take 2)

like Sherpas in search of an expedition
the backpackers tumble onto the dock
clutching Lonely Planet guidebooks
it’s nowhere near as lonely here
as their guidebooks promise
but it is part of the planet
they got that right
it is part of the planet.

(in the café below
Bob Marley is still jammin’
the locals talk of paradise lost
of Eve and apples bitten.)

This is a rewrite of a previous post.

    Today, I’m stepping out to explore my city after a long time. It’s fitting that I read this poem, because it’s been so long that I feel like I’m a stranger here.

    I do hope I can hear Bob Marley somewhere!
