Two Women in Conversation
We were deep in our work, and all
the functions that entails, and the
cleaning women were dusting and
polishing desks, their elbows intent
on wiping away lustre and any colour,
and I overheard one of them say,
What were those brown bits
in the salad.
Another woman answered,
I only go to the prayer meetings
for the coffee.
And as quickly as the women had
appeared with pink micro-cloths
and deep-surface sprays, they
disappeared into the next office
and into their next conversation.
