I dream where a little girl came to me asking me about Broken English
I just told her the meaning of what she ask and she went away
Very beautiful baby like age of six
She ask I dey
And I want to smoke ganja

I dream where you come to Nigeria
I took you to restaurant but you said the food is too spicy
So we left


There is so much glass in my parents’ house that I see rainbows everywhere.

At night the silence makes my ears ring.

We face west, so the sunsets are blinding, and at dawn everything is pastel.

Most mornings, the water is glassy. I like mornings.

There is a cute brick church nearby with a Lady Chapel. It sits next to a converted schoolhouse now morphed into a beer garden, and a tennis court where four elderly ladies play doubles at 7 a.m. like nobody’s business.
