Iced Coffee by Allison Pillay

A combination of curiosity
and desperation
led me
to this table

And now i sit
opposite him
and his date
skinny and blonde
Isn’t that great?

And I sit – here –
drinking
my iced coffee
in
voluptuous
silence

I hope I resonate peace. I laugh.

Hailed as the vessel of the verse, Allison is a South African poet who seeks to inspire and transform nations through the power of the Spoken Word.
