i miss africa when…

white lines on the road distract me (they don’t have those there).

lights from cars passing by blind me.

…ever i see pavement.

i crave mangos.

i see the picture of sharon’s laughing face.Image

i think of school.

i get a bill in the mail.

i have to drive…fast.

people bother me.

the smell of exhaust burns my nostrils.

my mind randomly gets caught singing,

“jambo, jambo bwana. habari gani. mzuri sana…”

cars stifle my walking conversation.
