AT THE HEART OF DAGBON

Running sweats 

conceived by mating muscles

and mobility in tiredness

***

Chapped skin

like burstings of mud zones

whipped by hot sunshine

***

Palms calloused

like the skin of a rough tree

displaying wares hoping for money exchange

***

You realize nothing is easy

when you see frustrated breath

running through noses 

on their hind legs,

their heat beats that of fires hands down

***

There really are sun whipped beings

You have seen nothing yet

Until you step on the heart of Dagbon’s Aboabo
