salafist and valentine


Salafist Tanka  
In Timbuktu 
Tobacco is banned
Hands get cut off 
Of those who smoke cigarettes
Awkward if you roll your own   


Tanka
Knocks on the front door
A draught of cold air got in 
Sleeps between us 
Tomorrow… valentine´s day
Insincere words and flowers.

    I meant to say the first tanka made me laugh. I stopped smoking but am tempted by the fumes. But for safety reasons I'm staying out of Timuktu.
