[A note to Katindi from New York, 28 March 2015]

Absence, they say, 
Makes the heart grow fonder. 
But whoever 'they' are, 
They clearly don't know 
What they are talking about. 
For absence also
Makes the heart ache
As one beholds
Beautiful sights and sounds
And realises that 
Their beauty is incomplete 
Because one's beloved
Is not present 
To partake of it
And so one looks 
Past the attractions
And the adventures, 
So longing for home, 
So missing the love of his life. 
Wish you were here, Katindi Sivi Njonjo
