I want Accra

i want rush hour traffic
as far as the eye can see

i want waakye
yes, as much as i can eat

i want circle
and fraud boys who “just want to help you”

i want trotros
and all the tetanus they bring

i want taxis
and lonely drivers who try to talk to me

i want ubers
and their gps-illiterate drivers

i want radios
and hosts who shout at each other

i want the mall
and high school kids who flock there in troops

i want purple
so i can eat wings, drink and forget home-training

i want coffee shops
with one-percenters being one-percenters

i want to be me
in an Accra that lets me be
