Kuki Gallmann – poem -6th May

Nairobi 6th May At the Aga Khan Hospital

Sounds of a restless town filtering 

through open curtains 

Drones of engines

vehicles of all kinds

going nowhere everywhere
Awake in my bed of pains 

in the peculiar silence

 of hospitals breathing with suffering strangers 
I am determined 

this should not be in vain
I hang to the grander Vision

Of the African Renaissance 

Temple of all spirituality

On the rim of the world 


-blues and purples and greens-

And distances
