Maseru, Love

Once, when winter was refusing to leave
and spring could not push it out, and never
could a season stay as long as that,
I spent days on Kingsway sitting on the street railing
watching children shuffle
in search of work parking cars; I spent days there
with my heart’s chimera
pointed at such questions. And so it was that one winter
I finally withdrew into its sea,
as spring bounced to touch the mountains,
and took one home with me, and made him heir
to what my lifetime had collected in solitude.
