POETRY: SKKRMBLE 4 AFRICA, by Casey Rocheteau

 

SKKRMBLE 4 AFRICA

Casey Rocheteau

 

Teacher said the Europeons got together and carved up the continent like a Thanksgiving
turkey in Berlin and I say that’s really messed up and aint
nobody move or breathe too loud. Just got quiet as a panther stalking
its own ghost. Made me feel like wind kicking up some old dust on a planet
that used to have water.
