16 Rand

Somewhere on Main Road in Cape Town, South Africa

There is a man

He is Cadbury’s milk chocolate

He is a free mint when leaving a restaurant

He is a hand shake turned hug

He missing his over sized wooden rosary

He has never missed God

He is the light through stained glass windows

He is a 2 dollar bill- to him only 16 rand, but to me

A treasure slipped in every Christmas card from my grandparents

He is a gift

He is a boundary hugger

He is an oxymoron

He is an isosceles triangle

He is I before E except after C

He was mine

And we were easy somewhere on Main Road in Cape Town, South Africa

Where our first and third world fingers met

As post apartheid's freedom song
