VANITY

A prickly peacock With one eloquent feather Long and majestic Rounded, kaleidoscopic Incongruous with its nature Reflective of its stature.

TYE AND DYE.

You bloom like a flower In my fertile heart Your ideas like petals Your words like thorns Your thoughts like blackjack That clings to me. And I, Unwittingly, Plant you wherever I go.

TROPICAL.

Today When I was in the shower; I thought of pineapple. Not the outside – the inside. Yellow and sweet Like a friendly sun That cuts your tongue As its juice hypnotizes you.

TICKING HOLLOW.

Where did all the years go? Yesterday, just yesterday Maybe a decade ago Just the other day Just yesterday Just It was just yesterday!

THE INKY BOTTOM.

Being, but not belonging A litany of words unsaid Escaping ceaselessly from unwilling mouths Speaking for one, not mute; But uncomprehending Accepted and Acknowledged, But not a part of… Pigment bond association But not Ubuntu Language unites and forms unbreakable Ties; as sad, drooping eyes Peer hard into the unknown Present, yes, but notContinue reading “STUDENT VISA.”
