26/30


With a scream and spittle

The pastor stands in the trotro and condemns women

For sitting in church with hands clasped fervently

As if they didn’t bleed out a baby two weeks ago

When the passengers utter a feeble amen to his halleluiah

He tells them they can do better

than to offer God sick Amens.

I smile at him in pity.

He’s missed countless opportunities to meet God,

because he’s been too busy condemning her

in exchange for currency notes
