Again you’re ready, all dress’d
a log, hollow chrome, feather fill’d
at this hour wrapp’d in pink, calm eludes you
sleep will not take you.
Soon your joints and springs will be complainin’
listen, hear whisperings at the ceilin’
as flat on your mattress my beau dwell
oh, if you could, things seen n’ heard in this room tell!
Would you recount this ballet?
How gay hands grope ev’ry inch of my clay
tracin’ contours, cuppin’ first one then the other
my front n’ rare hills – one after another.
And of how roamin’ south for that prize
surround’d by untrimm’d bush supplies
that sprout upon my bony ridge but held captive
by lacy slip, his thrusts became active.
Would you disclose how on all fours
in imitation of two beasts mating outdoors
the granite mass of his spear, hard in bout
stormed up my shore, drillin’ in and out,
leavin’ me hungry n’ spent. As his jerks die
and our screams echo on like battle cries.
And your frame forever built for the floor
becomes an arena to implore n’ explore.
And I in wonder fuss
will you though silent snitch on us?
Tell tales to my hubby away in Chad
that I’ve become Cheats’ willful child.

By the tollgate at Lekki, by the roadsidefar from the comforts of our loved oneseased from the day-to-day tasks we abidethere we sat in anguish n’ anger – agitated. Placards we brought with us –a solace to our heavy hearts,a plead to the world to hearbut soon we found we’ve upset our censors. With resentment, […]
The will to power destroys the power to will.The weapon made, we cannot help but use it;it drags us with its own momentum still. The power to kill compounds the need to kill.Grown out of hand, the heart cannot refuse it;the will to power undoes the power to will. Though as we strike we cry […]
