Crew only

We are required to dim the lights. The Caribbean is empty.
There was a hurricane, then a typhoon, AND THEN a tropical cyclone.
The cameras are sleeping. There should be a palm tree right here.
No walls, no roof, no furniture, but the bar is still open,
Broken bottles, coconuts and tiny umbrellas everywhere.
Is that Hemingway buying daiquiris for Ulrike Meinhof?
It can’t be. They’re both dead. Or at least very drunk.
I can’t come up with a punch line. Tomorrow it's Burma.
