Crown of Moons

A crown of moons appear

in dreams, the five of them merged as one.

Around a table they sit,

they speak of being, doing, of light and dark.

“….all are equal in madness and in dreams,” they say.

I hear:

mwenye, hindiye, lao wai, gweilo, farang.

Stand tall, 

ground your feet, my children

kneel, defy all notions 

of master, place, or servant.

Spin quintet of moons upon my head and ears.

I'd love to hear from you
