Love Enough, by Dionne Brand

The woman is brooding, so he is quiet. Every six months there’s an inspection on this car, he has to do this to keep the plates, then there’s the gas, then there’s the other driver, who is always crying about money as if Da’uud doesn’t have enough children of his own. Of course this is not what he would have done if there was any other way but there was no sense thinking about that. The heart is sore. Before you know it you’ve been driving a cab for ten years. The cab flies along the lake at the south of the city to Sunnyside.

“Where in Sunnyside?” he says when they are near to Parkside Drive.

“Just here,” the passenger says.

— from LOVE ENOUGH by Dionne Brand, published by Alfred A. Knopf Canada, a division of Random House Canada
