Just Another Song

January 12, 2020Poems

I want to know what you’re writing I want to know if it’s about me  I need to know if you’ve thought the way I do  I want to know how often and what it is  What it is you think about  What did I...

Joe

January 12, 2020Poems

Sometimes I think my days away without you what would I do  Sometimes I feel like the world says you have to be alone to be strong  I think they’re wrong  Because your sole makes me feel like...

Dry Throat

January 12, 2020Poems

The Hand that Fed Him

September 28, 2019Poems

  You still remember? That noteworthy December When flakes of snow coated our legs Frigid, yet we damned the regs. Stuffed in the unclothed diary An artifact that archived your fiery Our...

Amaka

September 28, 2019Short stories

Look at us. Amaka, just look at us. The rocks are broken; the spring is dying. We no longer care. The way a hen spread her wings around her chickens, that was how I once shielded you from hate....

Nampang

September 25, 2019Short stories

Nampang, she remembered it all, the way a river remembers how to run. A long time ago, say when she was twelve, she joined the chase. When the rooster crowed, it meant two things. One, it was...

To Love or Not to Love

September 24, 2019Poems

I am a cosmic green That hangs above your sky Chunky tar Bloated to the brim Unavoidable quiescent Spreading warmth to your ice I indulge We live This is how to love -selfless Your desires are...

My Other Love

September 24, 2019Short stories

“It is over between you and me. I can’t take this no more.” It is crunch time. Enough is enough. I maintain a steady gaze. My eyes are red. If that is what they mean by fire in...

September 24, 2019Poems
