Morning walk in Zanzibar

Walkers, runners,
scattered football, girl basketball team (one with veil),
green like it is growing out of fashion,
trees, wise, tall.

Man on bicycle shadow boxing with an intent
gaze on his imaginary opponent,
women (mostly veiled) going somewhere for sure,
hospital abuzz with hospital activity,
green like it is growing out of fashion,
trees, umbrellas giving shade.

Young Indian in car, fast,
blind to the football, the walkers,
the bicycles, the trees, the
green.
