Dar-es-Salaam (Haven of Peace)
by Walter Durk
Bookmark and Share
  You wanted to taste the meat and juices
of ripened pears plucked from the tree,
and let their sugar drip from the corners
of your young sensual mouth.
The season was not near
the trees were bare and cold
and your time began to still
with the wind.
A wistful life, uneasy mind
and tortured vacant womb
left stranded upon a beach,
your idealized love
unrequited.
Surrogates could not suffice
full of themselves as river people
Mow you have lived for a time
in Dar-es-Salaam
and your heart is still and calm.
