29/30


The city is known

for looking like a work in progress;

For making therapists out of passengers

For the benefit of taxi drivers

For protesting and dismissing issues

in the time it takes for a baby to take a nap,

For telling fortunes and sending warning messages

disguised as public signs on the back of public transport:

God is good,

dzi wo fie asem,

no where cool,

nipa yɛ bad,

for sale,

dabi dabi ɛbɛyɛ yie.
