Bulgarian Cognac

They are dancing,
waltzing, dancing to a band,
dressed in fashions from the 30's and 40's
It is like time travel
and you are back in the '30's and '40's,
we are with an Iranian courier, Massim
it is all a little surreal,
an excellent meal,
then afterwards Bulgarian cognac and black cigarettes
first rate
the communists did some things right
the cognac sweet and strong
like the memory,
sweet and strong
like a black cigarette
