Tamarind

Opal Palmer Adisa

 

Mangy dog 
mingle wid pot-belly 
picknies;
leaves sail 
in open gutters

 

Human feces 
is de only 
refuse in garbage bins 
Johncrows circle

 

Women at darkness 
keep company 
wid streets, leanin against 
walls waitin men whose 
wallets mean food 
Tamarind switch 
slices flesh 
Johncrow descends
