colour blind

dude turns up
every Saturday
smiling, dispensing hugs
no words he needs to say

his presence is
my sanctuary
I know peace when he’s there
my heart is merry

‘n he cares not
that I’m no longer thin
same way he never bothered
about my caramel skin

‘cos when you truly love
with other folks you’re unconcerned
something that the two of us
long ago learned
