  • In my own right
    I’ll say Julie was not always right
    For she would think her left was the right
    But her right wasn’t the right, but the left
    Twas hard to tell her
    That the right was wrong
    Since the left was rig

  • My wondering eyes
    First beheld the shimmer of indigo
    Ever before my gaze inclined with the bearer
    Of magical aura
    Life and death at just a wink
     
    Purple velvet
    It beamed conspicuous
    Thick the crowd yet

    And the thought

    Of where he should have been

     

    No white gown

    No down the aisle

    No Priest’s “say after me”

  • It was Friday again
    You called her — as it was your manner
    Same rendezvous
    The corner of the bar
    Where the spinning rainbow ignores your existence
    She’s your Meerkat and that’s her burrow

  • I was stripped of my rind

    Then discarded

    I was a forsaken matter

    The type you find in the refuse

    With malodorous neigbours

    And the songs of the flies

     

    Dampened and depraved

    I thought that

  • There used to be orges on the street

    They used to be wars of loud bang

    Of the songs that filled the street

    with raving wails and gnash

    Of AKs that drilled our walls

    Of thunderous boom

    That turned

  • Fola grinned on the front page again, beside the president.
    Why him all the time?
    Where has he been that I haven’t?
    I’ve been to the tropical paradise where green carpet damps the feet with comfiness. I’ve been

    It started as pinches,

    the type that made your neighbours run to the wall,

    to hear his words tingle – pins.

    You noticed, as you walked the street,

    neighbours whispered, “see where he had pu

  • Efe bit the hand that fed him.

    The fingers cried – pitiable waah!

    The thumb watched in awe.

    But Efe showed no remorse.

    He would still carry his shoulder,

    like one who hides a boil in his

    We frolicked, hide and seek before twilight stole our sight
    The hairy village market was our maze, thick, tall and tangling

    The way a hen spread her wings around her chickens, that was how I once shielded you from hate. Fearless, we
