Leaving Akwatia
craving coconuts
roadside vendors

two disappointing stops

we found coconuts…
finally i thought.

The thought quickly vanished

The graveyard

Coconut shells
piled onto a hill
mimicking skulls
after a battle
in ancient times

A handful
of live coconuts
sat above the shells
like kings
or simply

awaiting…

the end of their simple
delicious lives
from the man with the large cutlass.
