KENYA TOWN

Gloria,
You know the gift you’ve bought is euphoria,
Changing my odd spirit name to Victoria
In what can now be part of our best historia
A beautiful beautiful Thursday traveling to a Friday utopia

II
From Nyerere Street to Central Park
…Daily Nation Headquarters to the pilaar joint
Coffee Casa and its literary insights to KFC through a matatu
…without its signature loud music
Sparks did hack our hearts

III
The laughter
The wins
The girls flying through their storms of womanhood
The love
The distance
The wait hoping life will bridge the cold
The bold
The shy
The hands locking right in smiles
Reliving Iseyin and its thrills
As shame is shamed and dames roam free
…in careless spree

IV
How gifted are you to give me a tour
That will so call for more?
How great are you lighting bright
…my soul in a wholesome whole?
How blessed are you touching right
…my spirit in a heartfelt yearning?
I am a Kenyan in a day
…sympathizing with meditating strugglers
…holding on to my purse through naughty streets
…meeting street sellers and hawkers at their hustling best
A reason your season has seasoned my reasoning
…lies in a fate bounded by a future
A future unknown to both you and I
