Palms facing up

Feet scurry before

a white, dodgy foreigner.

Asking for alms

coins, or whatever forms

of mercy.

Every one’s talent

for disguises is shed

right before the young one’s

eyes

Every one

One truth, however,

peeks at the surface:

this utilitarian mother

sulking in the shade

as she watches her kid

tender to its labor.
