“The Nature of Clarity”
“Have you ever gone to little italy? They have the best spaghetti.” Esad fixed her eyes on Zuberi as the two walked side-by-side with her arms wrapped around his.
“Do you jest?” Zuberi asks Esad. She remains unwavering, “I have no interest in the wazungu’s spaghetti.”
“What is wrong with their spaghetti?” Zuberi walks silently. “Don’t you ever want to expand your experiences?”
“I expand my experiences by investing in my own people,” Zuberi responds. “An enriched people offer enriched experiences.” His mind traveled to the past, where Africans at home and abroad had neither resources nor resourcefulness, yet through intelligent self-enrichment they now had products and productivity. When once the products around him, on him and in him, were from eurasians, everything he consumed now was African: his food, his clothing, his shelter and his consciousness was African.
“You have an answer for everything,” Esad smiles laying her head on Zuberi’s broad shoulder faintly aware of the deep thought Zuberi puts in each response.
“Such is the nature of clarity.” Esad nuzzles her face in Zuberi’s arm. They just had an excellent second date and the couple now walks to Zuberi’s place for its conclusion.
