(For Clementine, the blue girl)
By Tikum Mbah Azonga
Look at me and write it
I’m here, right here, right now
And here to stay
I won’t move an inch
I mean, until the chickens come home to roost
So go on
Go right ahead, and do it right
Paint me the portrait of the Aries lady.
Are you wondering whether I’m fit?
And whether although I smile, I can vow?
Yes, I can, but only in early May
If you don’t know, I can also pinch
I know my rights and what I need as a boost
Whether I am selling at Tim’s or humming for fun.
That’s why my days are always bright
And why I’ll never be part of your bevy.
