The Laugh of Flora Gonzalez By Jasen Sousa

The Laugh of Flora Gonzalez


Flora’s spray painted graffiti gray hair,
her intricate colorful maze sweaters.
Fluorescent lights and her jewelry’s glare.
The graceful way she draws her letters.
Nothing compares to the sound and the way
it bounces off the confined classroom walls.
Bellowing laugh, Cuban missile astray,
debris from the explosion slowly falls,
blending embers, her smile surrenders.
A sound a student couldn’t help but remember.
