I am dancing for my Bubu’s river
in synthetic threads she gave me
I am looking in river leaves
to see futures she wants for me
The dreams she chants
spiel on plastic tape
She asks for reunification
that never happens
Brings tears to my mother
never totally wiped away

Sample of a new collection I am working on inspired by my Mekeo Identity.
Bubu is short for grandparent, also used for grandchild, but here used for grandmother.
