Charcoal black, years back
when mother with black
soap did bathe her.
In the mask of the bright yellow sun
pearl she shone
just like the dotless face of the iron,
opaque mirror smeared with oil.
Shea butter smear gave great joy days before she cast eyes
on the fair goddesses of America.
Now dung’s better to touch and gulp
than mother’s shea butter.
Its smokey nutty smell invokes an allergic uproar
in her intestines.
Gastric content spills with reckless abandon
from her blood-red-coloured lips.
She is alien now, faded
glory, borrowed sto-
ry. Only her knuckles can tell
the true story
