YOUR THOUGHTS (For Hon. Abla Dzifa Gomashie)

I’d like to be a vein in your thoughts
To see what sadness for you has got
To know what your weeping soul has bought
…for your many thoughts

II
I’d like to be in your thoughts
To hear the horrors in your heart
As the call for casket closure booms
Do your hurts now fully zoom to gloom a doom?

III
I’d like to be in your skin
To know where the bumps of fear birth
For I know this feeling
And I ache for your body
…whose mind can’t mind floating comfort
…whose heart can’t hear any better keeps
…whose eyes see the mouth of the earth
…opening to feed on one half of you

IV
I’d like to be in your stomach
To hold the thunders that are striking
And their clouds of loneliness raining
Knowing the bed that only two shared
…has been divided, one on earth, one beneath
…for a lifetime

V
I won’t console
For that fills no hole
I won’t come close
For that gives no closure
I won’t act out
Because I know not the needs of your grief
But I sit here among your people
Hoping you think of it as a storm
…bound to calm
No matter how scary
