A Map by Stephanie Ndoungo
The palm of my hands and my big feet Remind me of father The squint and the gap in my front teeth Remind me of mother
The scratches on my elbows and knees Remind me of my rough childhood Stretch marks and scars on my bikini line Remind me of motherhood
The roundish scars on my breasts and spots on my back Remind me of prison and ill-treatment The seriousness of my gaze, my frown lines, the wrinkles around my lips Remind me of my struggles as an asylum seeker
My heavy waist and chubby cheeks Remind me that I am still alive
