The Beautiful Ones Are Not Yet Born
My lover left me
for my boss who drives a Mercedes.
Here I sat in silence
loaded with sadness;
‘nna*…'the beautiful ones are not yet born'
my Ma said.
The thought of an ant wanting to wrestle an elephant...
I drive a VW tortoise-like car
left for me by my dad
left for him by his dad
and a large Standard English dictionary,
that spelt out life and death…
...that was all I got.
I decide to save for a Mercedes
Saved in a bank, in socks, piggy money box, under the carpet...
Saved into the fifth month of the second ...
