Africa at the back of my house

Africa at the back of my house

In Africa behind my house
wild cats moan and drop their litter
among the lawless leaves.

As Africa far out there heeds
western winter promises,
here among the jungle hours-old
mothers predate prepared meals.

I mind the growling mews,
pushing the gate into
this promised Eden
with eastern oblation.
