Every once in a while,
a face from the past
suddenly in my head,
random memory flash,
a neighbour called Dessie,
pronounced as Dezzy,
tall, thin, straight-backed,
decent hard-working man,
when he walked by,
he never stopped
but he would always say hello.

I was Joseph,
he called me Jodiv.

Why the sudden memory flash?
I have no idea. The mind's tricks, a whim?
Whatever the reason,
I'm glad I remember him.
