Congolese Dreams: From A Shadow
At the bank of a river stood a shadow,
it had walked thirty and four miles from
a wooden hut like a broken ant dragging an
injured worm to an ant hill.
On its left, a coconut tree stood pregnant,
whose canopy has been tempted by the wind
to make a shade...
"but what can a shadow do for a shadow?"
