Running in the streets


La Habana, Cuba, January 2018, canon digital, ©Sylvie G

around eight am he got up
sulked in his coffee
fasting,  going for a walk
seven thousand steps an hour,
one has to start in order to finish.
A hundred steps a minute,
but one hundred twenty-five is  better,
turn right,
the charity box has  been stolen
turn left,
five thousand two hundred and twenty-five.
Almost there, don’t give up
the mobile prayer truck is parked.
Seven thousand steps. Every day.

      1. Thank you Sylvie. Cuba has long been on my « list » of places to visit and your words capture it so beautifully. 🙂
