know I did
not, could not
have forgotten to write
the day before today.
know that too well, I
Life – corn and fish
and, and well, and
You – happened.
Yes, Life happened again
with the character that salt is
with the personality that is pepper’s
with the quiet confidence of sun
with the simple immensity of water
– Tuesday, 3rd July 2018; North Kaneshie, Accra.
