Air Afrique
by Chad Vandiver

    The smell of chickens
    Fills the air, purging
    My nose of any
    Other smell as I
    Am visually
    Overtaken by
    The beautiful bright
    Colors that cover
    The Ivorian
    Passengers bound for
    Abidjan, where big
    City culture meets
    Village legend in
    A sweet sultry West
    African fusion.
