Five Stars for ‘A Bell For Andy’ Check it out!
You come to me and take my hand
gazing furtively over your shoulder
the shadow whisperers that follow
are hidden in secret doorways
Brushing your lips on my brow
pensive furrowed mouth speaks
low and comforting words
of babble to my anxious ears
I love you tumbles out and drops
on concrete steps to shatter
and splatter a million drops
covering your expensive shoes
The deed is done in dark alleys
watched by shadow whisperers
overheard by black crows
that fly and squawk the truth
Ours is not the light of day
to linger in and be seen
by those whose tongues
would loose arrows that sting
The sun touches the sky
your hand releases mine
and you turn and walk away
wiping shoes on pressed trouser cuffs
Central America is poised for a bloodbath. Anastasio Somoza, third of the Somoza dynasty, is setting the country up for civil war with his greed and abject disdain for the people who populate his country of Nicaragua. The FSLN, Frente Sandinista de Liberacíon Nacional, is growing in strength and a coup is anticipated. Sent to keep an eye on the brewing storm, Bob Elkins is caught behind a veil of deceit and corruption, where guns, and drugs arrive daily at the borders, to be sold to the highest bidder and finance the takeover of Nicaragua. When the U.S. withdraws support of the Somoza regime and begins to back the efforts to depose the man, Bob’s cover is suspect, and he finds himself taking to the jungle of Honduras, with the rebel counterrevolutionaries known as the Contras. CIA agent, and Bob’s lover back in the U.S., Mike Wells, is sent to Honduras to blend in with the Contras. The two men, unaware that they are walking into a game of cat and mouse, join forces to get information out to the U.S. government, risking all in the process.
Much is at stake for the U.S. from the loss of Nicaragua to a communist regime, to the growing drug trade in Columbia, and the fragile countries of Costa Rica and Panama that lie in between the guns and the drugs. For Bob and Mike, it is a time of action, intrigue, and vigilance. They can share their love discreetly in the jungle, but living long enough to do so, is not going to be easy.
