IN THE END

All are folding Folding into touches of feelings Eyes will see but won’t know Ears will hear but can’t translate Minds will sit, only calling on feelings To search To seek and tell In the end II A crow may turn vulture in spirit An eagle may look the part of a hen A bark […]

Ashawo Diaries (Tales of Adwoa Attaa) Chapter 37 (18+)

“If your superior has complete control over you, they can take off your ring through your shoulder”. This is a proverb my father liked very much. Lying helpless on someone’s bed without the knowledge of any beloved, this proverb came to mind. Billy could kill me to stop any rumours from circulating. He could easily […]

GULPING SQUEEZEOHOLICS

Meet me there There At the blue kiosk right by the street of Nyansakrom For sips of sympathies which sink unfairness in oceans of insanities II Meet me there There To fathom with the power of kabi kyerɛ w’ase Why thoughts of society seem more complex than man Man who is their sole author III […]

To chase a rat out of its hole, you sure need smoke. I reckoned, even without being told, that was what my former Mexican bosses were doing. I didn’t get it though because I didn’t know much about the cartel. I knew they used the prostitutes to do the delivery in most countries using their […]

PUT ME TOGETHER

Your talented fingers Can make wholesome my figure From arms to thighs Neck to knees Vein to vein Help, help put me together II All the feelings of yesteryears Bottled and dusty All the failings of months past Suffocating and harming All the brighter routes Missed in blindness All the calling stars in the clouds […]

THE PRICE OF BREATH

In this myth we live No matter who conceived All that we believe Is the magic of breath II It lights the eyes So let them look It opens the ears So let them listen It opens your mouth So let it say All that it needs to say III It powers the heart So […]

Probing by a rival, surely is a bait for a fight or for future revenge. I turned, walked back and sat by him. “Did something happen while I was gone?” I asked as politely as I could. “What else could happen apart from the emptiness?” He had never been one to show jealousy, so I […]

A NEED TO HAVE

Fireflies glow to charm the night Darkness always playing their best partner From the intruding moon right down to its stars Charmed eyes only see targets Relegating others into nonexistence I am the one you need to have Not one you have to need II Hearts speak even in separation Minds bond even in absentia […]

MONEY BALL (A Satirical Play by Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia)

FIRST HALF Two strong looking men bump into each other running from opposite directions. The one from left, Nyane, wearing agbada without shorts and just one shoe on the left leg, falls and starts wailing as if he has been caught by some monsters, the one from right, Takyi who nearly fell, shouts at him […]

HE IS ANAS

Hidden eyes in open space Ghostful body in hardened bones Crafts to mirror Hunts like a warrior In this forest where lions chew it all Including their protectings He is Anas! II When his plants are in ready harvest Constipated bowels are pushed by pills of fear into running Thick skins give way to shivering […]

Those who have much to lose, tiptoe in foot wears of society’s deviation, lest they are fried in their acts in its gluttonous mouth. It was a long ride to the destination. I was blindfolded when I was picked and had to sit with it all through the ride. Ntwanu knew I had a job […]

Change has its upsides and as well downsides. The sex with Ntwanu was just okay to my disappointment. I felt a déjà vu that was unusual and daunting and strained to have it come to an end. He was no fool, so he felt it but was too sad to ask. I was also too […]
