waiting

We spend a lot of time waiting. Of course, in the interim the world goes by. School children head home, women work over fires, men stumble home drunk or chop food or sit huddled in the shade of low roofs. We drink Fanta in the shade, and then we start working.

A Good Collection


I am happy
With the pieces I have collected
Over the years,
The woman I have become 
Today - this September morning
With the old tenement houses reaching
Towards the blue sky.
