The Barber Shop

Kiswahili in Brooklyn,
Government utilities,

Mercedes outside, and
I’m falling in love with my country.

Seven days he works.
Day’s off, he says

Entrepreneur, he plays
Doing what he can to cut hair well and,

Provide a space
For the rich and poor,

The men and women,

To do their hair and discuss freely,

Their politics.
The Mercedes-Benz outside, is his.
