a prayer within

The day I buy myself a color black Harrier

I will shave my legs

steam my thighs

and paint my hair red.

I will slide into my little black dress

and stuff my feet inside a pair of drop-dead gorgeous six-inch heels

I am yet to decide on the importance of wearing underwear.

On that day,

I will wear kilos of lipstick

buckets of face powder

and several cans of body spray

I will buy chewing gum

and make balloons with it.

Before I drive off

I will raise my hands and praise God

I will slot in my favorite music – Fally Ipupa Mayday

wiggle my fine buttocks for a minute

slap my thighs,

decorate my fingers with gold rings

and hide my eyes in black shades.

It is then that I will drive to Nairobi

after hanging my bra on the side mirror

ha! On that day…
