Sittin’ with an angel

20 Mar

met an angel last night
almost like a scene inna movie
got into a bus around nine
sat back left second-last row
passengers slowly tricklin’
then she steeped in
sat right next to me
angelic in every sense
I don’t mean tha bright light or white wings
she was short a lil’ over 5 feet
nice round hips succulent lips
b-uty-ful smooth caramel skin….

anxious she seemed at first
hufflin’ papers diggin for coins in her purse
lookin’ up n down even dropped her I-phone
tension all around everywhere
then she sat back her shoulder right by mine
no sparks jumped
just a nice warmth wen tha arms touched…
tha bus begun to move
ma heart tellin’ me to make a move…but cudn’t
“want some gum?” her sweet voice asked
how cud I refuse….

our chat begun
I asked her name and she inquired mine
we began to guess from which clan we emerged
she spoke some french I replied with some spanish
we retracted back to tha more familiar english n swahili…

on n on we talked till tha last bus stop
out we went n tha chat on it went
by her doorstep till it hit twelve o’clock
then we part ways…no kiss no hug
just a soft swipe of our palms…
As I walked away I was convinced
I had sat next to an angel.
