Rastas in P’Town

Happy hour
Shank Painter Road
Two dozen oysters
At Mac’s
Brightly colored shack
Green and yellow
Across the road
Jamaican takeout
Popped in for a look
Had to try
Caribbean soul food
Ordered goat curry stew
Smiles from woman
Behind the counter
Works at our motel
Stays year round
No time with daughter
Until late fall
Unlike Rastas
Seasonal workers
Making enough each summer
To chill in winter sun
Reggae island
Languid but poor
Taking restaurant and motel
Jobs each year
Annual migrations
Adding flavor
To fishing village
Outermost peninsula
Gone rainbow
