"Littleness" may seem a bad idea to both the poor and the rich. To the former by virtue of lack of means, to the latter by shortness of life. Set in Kenya, "Little Things" is a collection of poems that superficially are little, but cryptic on the contrary. It captures in a memorable, titillating handiwork the daily hardships that are a workaday issue to the Kenyan pauper.
