My Birthday

09 Mar

I buy a new dress

I order from you

laughter and drinks

Like the black and white cake

I know my target and shoot straight

at 30

swinging from the hip


Sandwiches of Indian care

80’s music that received and gave life in East Germany

Spun intensely

by a dangerously handsome Bangladeshi-Brit

Canada is at the party

where the Maasai pledge loyalty

The actors haven’t seen the script

of this 35 year old production

made by me


Vanilla for what is clear

Strawberry for what brought cheer

Chocolate for what is dear

Like hot fudge

I have lived thick and fast

At 40 I have no use for festivity

that I have not summoned

Like this ice cream

am good on my own


Happy birthday from AAR!

Safaricom wishes you joy and good health!

There is also the family eulogy

Written for me before I die

Remembered for profit and for love

Kind messages will be read tomorrow

Good wishes from me is all I need

I’m 44 and I am all of me
