A piece of literature that tackles the issue of racism in the African continent. It liberates the mind of the reader, and it inspires black consciousness in all aspects.

mist and drowsy clouds, in the saddened conurbative atmosphere.
winter is near...

teleported to a café scented with rosemary and florencent jasmine –

"Plain Coffee, Please."

the waiter is a zulu goddess decorated with caramel-coated melanin with her breats unclothed and artistically sagging.

"No sugar?"

she says, creating a wave of tsunamis the savannah has never seen. her pink lipstick opened portals of lust - 
in a rush, I dived inside. 

synchronised –

a revealed artistic gallery painted with dreadful narratives of African lies. 
I think, I'm inside her mind. 

oh, cool. where does the gold reside? 
or was it all taken, rather stolen by the creatures with pale skin? 
the truth lies deep within... 
I swim through the confides of her solar plexuses and ascend towards her third eye - its blinking! I'm thinking... 

desynchronised –

back to the café. 
my mug has a cute drawing of the African continent, and I requested plain coffee. what is the milk doing here? 

"Plain Coffee, Please!"
