Simon Odhiambo


In Mind...Still


Evening it is
Everyone, in a hurry
Except you

The sun, so sleepy
The clouds, so gravid

You pass by and pause
I pause and look

Your luggage
On your back

I see

Your buggage
In your heart

I feel

Your eyes
White
And black
And grey
And Glassy

Betrayal, betrayal, betrayal

A drizzle...

In haste
I depart
I ponder

No Home
No Home
Poor you

A distance...

I look back
The pause
Still on

You are home
This kerb
Your home

Raindrops...

Not a pause
It's a stop
You are home

Torrents!
