Born in the Kòró era.

Born in the Kòró era,

my granddaughter knows only two faces:

her mother and her father.

These kids born in the United States

to parents who are isolating

only know two faces.

Given the beautiful face of her mother

and the gentle face of her father,

If my granddaughter sees

my untrimmed Koro face

she is going to scream

and run like Usain Bolt.
