I Am Abandoned - Poem by Tony Adah
I am in an old gas station
Down the road
Derelict and abandoned
Two of us here.
A shaking moustache
Like the rat's whiskers
And moss-grown walls
And drooping dispensers.
I have gone to the university twice
And once I am abandoned
I am not out of my mind
But the great labyrinths of my thoughts
And I am here abandoned
Those who read in less than twenty six alphabets
Are calm in chilled cubicles
Like Norwegian fish in a morgue
Waiting for petrodollars
Their barrels are full and standing
And mine are empty and lying.
