​AT THE BRINK

I see the hollow hole At all sides How even this air turned mole And the earth dug all my sides Makes me feel like one who stole From Satan’s slides II The mouth of defeat sings piercingly Being cheered on by the drums of fear The laughter of failure resonates across the dept of […]

​IN THIS POEM (CRAZY STANZAS)

On this dead branch Carried by water, I thread Each step, a shocking surprise Interlaced with fear But like a blessed cat with nine lives The soul carries this body in moving on II My only cocoon is you This poem, where my bed of peace is laid My only home is you This poem, […]

​WHAT YOU DON’T SEE

A skeletal build

With veins of neglect

Blood of stress and thirst

Meat of hate and pure hunger

Skin of punches of cold in a harmattan visit 

And bowl of heat in sunny days

Nails which have tasted the hammer of many quarries

Eyes which have joined the run against death

Legs which have collapsed and been whipped by need to a wake

Why do I see them so well?

​IF MY TOMORROW NEVER COMES

If my tomorrow never comes And my end’s vehicle lands Will I, like a legless eagle with broken wings, soldier across To my ancestral land with a smile Or throw tantrums and be dragged there like a prisoner? II If my tomorrow never comes What will I be on tongues of others? A chewing gum […]

​ANGEL OF HIDDEN GOOSEBUMPS

There is a summer hut On the roof of the moon Which all prying eyes cut Waiting for us to swoon So do those problems shut II We need our hands threaded in symphony Our feet running in a perfect dance To tickling sounds of harmony Our eyes writing our thoughts in each other at […]

WHEN HIS PANTS ARE DOWN

Worms wriggle Dogs bark Cats mew So be careful of birthed promises When his pants are down II I know of flowers who have lived on clouds With plucked stars and moons Bedding in chariots of all their fantasies Dancing to the tune of Cupid’s best Only to fall as rains Into a hell of […]

DEAD CANES IN KUKUBALI

​ Sitting in the past with the wrinkled As my time’s stars stood in the greenest twinkle I heard of eyes, potent in closure Even in most secluded holes Seeing hectic moles who fates stole In the near tomorrow The near tomorrow which garnishes my feet today Yet I laughed like a wise soul hearing […]

BE THE LIGHT

AT THIS CROSSROADS

At this crossroads Where good leads to bad And bad leads to good Stands the whip of fear At all ends II At this crossroads Righteousness begets pain While cruelty begets peace Yet conscience acts judge With a gavel of suffering III The lioness in me battles the sheep I am The tears in me […]

​THIS GLOBAL VILLAGE

In the wake of this breaking Where the world lives a touch away There is no need for a shaking Of wits and hurts and hate to stray For the world goes round and round II Today the best sit in an earthquake of disagreement Tomorrow a small island Might hold the reigns of power […]

​INSECT TOWN
