you only die once

hurtling down nithi bridge

riding shotgun

on a miraa parcel run

the transporter reports that

he’s broken more bones than once

I know the grade one

And its business

The night parts pierced by flight


god speed



Nairobi life slips past the concrete

jungle unchained to data bundles

and sheets of paper metal


this is to Nyari. I christened the girl Achieng’

she’s the sun. if you saw her

you’d concur.

I didn’t get her picture

Leave that


Live like you’ll die once and forever

Live to remember. I stop here. bye
