if you walk for long enough
and cross enough seas,
you eventually transform into someone else.

maasai4your walk becomes taller or more hunched,
your feet and hands more calloused.

your face becomes worn,
though your clothes are always new.

maasai scarfyou journeyed long enough to shake anyone
hot on your trail—
brats eager for a spanking
and a sucker.

traveling by starlight for many moons,
your eyes are black carrying the
reflection of the universe
into your new body,
your new shell of a self.
