Dar es-Salaam

The morning monsoon swirls in off the Indian Ocean
the gale drips from Arabesque porticos
and down the white lattice-work walls
the long jetty stretches into the false bay
as the fishermen pay the storm no mind.
All is quiet in the "Abode of Peace,"
save for the drip-drip-drips.
Dar es-Salaam, indeed.
