nairobi

nairobi.
is a fast city;
of fast food. furious.
running stomachs
cold beer. marathon.
running noses. angry.
running mouths. costs.
of living. run-away &
from the police
running battles

the air
is dust & smoke
noise, the garbage choke
& no choice. only,
money’s voice.

the sky
is scraped
by phalluses
and fallacies

the city is tribal.
withal jobs & businesses
invisible walls
wine & blankets-es

night. life
flashing lights
and socialites
wild. life.

nairobi
is mine

…..

jojo

unplugged; the writer’s note
i took a break from the city and retreated to the country. work. this is what i saw when i came back.

me thinks man shouldn’t be so packed in together. scientists studied rats/ mice and are with me on this.
