The radio glows hot
The radio glows hot with non stop programming from the
Caribbean. You rub your eyes and make a pact with God and
Fidel you'll be his secret agent here in America; in the belly of
the beast. You disconnect your receiver, hide it under your
bed like in the movies, and turn off the light. You get
undressed in the dark a smile on your face. You're a guerrilla
fighter: a man with a purpose and tomorrow you'll start to
prepare yourself for the coming revolution in which all men will
be free from exploration! For the first time in your life you feel
like you'll survive.
From Fidel's Secret Agent
