He Smells like Rain

He smells like rain and Cairo after dark
He smiles and the Zebras in the Zambezi lose their stripes

He reaches out his hand
and the walls of my heart;
those brick walls with foundations deeper than wells dug in the Sahara,
Yes, those walls,
crumble to nothingness…

An old man once told me:
‘You find what you seek.’
I sought heaven, I found an angel
