THAT FIRST TIMER

Koo Kum anticipated and anticipated
Like a villager promised a city tour
His crown being his foolish grin
When he thought of his awesome spin
On top of the heavenly angel
Whose beauty had consumed
All her gargantuan flaws
In his eyes

II
Mere fantasies made him drool
His perfect words
Manly looks
Controlling initiation
Rewarding sounds
And perfect poundings
Nothing went wrong in the land
Of his make belief
Boosting his confidence

III
Finally he was joining the table of men
To dine in the pot
Age had cooked into heated cold
Switching to perfection with the mood
Yaa Afranso, his deary dear

IV
Who cared how many hands
Eat from her heavenly pot?
Who cared about her ‘akolomia’ legs?
Who cared about her infested sofas
Arrested by rot from avenging foods
Which had suffered years of butchering
Grinding and swallowing
From the little toffee
God gave her to invest in her growth?
Even she turning an ‘opremire’
To shed her skin in multicolism
Bloated his yam tuber
Buried deep in the land of his apparels
Making it the visible snake in daylight

V
Then the day which had travelled
Through time’s bridal walk arrived
Hailed by his enthusiasm
Dark room, he thought, was best
As none must see to know
Until after he had conquered his task
All preparations packed their bags
And left with his vigour
But Yaa Afranso won’t let go of his soil
She dug into his land and easily uprooted his tuber
Her foul aromatic meal
Arresting his nose with sharpness
Whipping him to reach for the switch
Flood of light showed all the dancing viruses and germs
Hiding in her smile
His bloated tuber already forcefully stirring her meal
Lost its air in action
Causing him to call on God
The one person he hid from to get this far
But He showed his mercilessness with His quietude
And Koo Kum mentally buried his tuber forever

VI
And so it was
That Koo Kum became the Tuesday weeder
Chased by angry sleepy gods
In his beloved home ground
Attracting giggles from maidens
Who bought the tall tales of Afranso
With their hard earned time
