A friend of ours opened a coffee shop / florist in a dis-used former prison, which unfortunately couldn’t sustain the penalties of COVID.

Cells of Kikka

Young petals behind old bars
As Paarl’s prison grows proteas
Cells now replete with blossoms
Replacing incarcerated lags
Honeyed rooibos, iced latte
Excel over mealies and water
No guards, just flower ladies
Changing the clink into Kikka

Paarl, South Africa, February 2022
