APARTMENT II

Splash!
You hear the water drop
Splash Splash
Semi-Splash..



You turn the tap head
full on.
Transparent steel flows
in enthusiastic order.


Your palms interfere
the flow,
you trap some steel
and it dances on
your face.


It makes the breathing
better,
makes the seeing
fair enough.


The room stops spinning.
You are glad
till it turns upside down
with the ceiling under
your feet,
the floor boards dance
around your head.


You capture more steel
attacking your face with
such malicious redemption.
You see a spider,


suspended in the air
hopping sideways
and grinning at you,
You grin back.


The tap stops
there is a black out,
a noiseless disturbance
about everywhere.


The wind comes to
live, outside.
The curtains fly around
in desperation for
freedom.


You start to walk
in circles on
the square boards.
Forty-five of them,
You counted them
Four by nine.


You keep walking
transfixed to the
thirtieth board
all the while.


The door opens with
a jingling bang
the wind,
angry now
shuts the door


The circle spins
fast again
faster still,
until you see the spiral rings.


You land hard on
the bed.
I see you move
sweat bathing you,
clammy sweat.


I tap you,
your eyes fly open.


"I had a nightmare",
you tell me.
I smile smugly,
"No, you've been awake".

I'm a Buffer Girl pour l'Amour

I’ve always known true love exists; always and convincingly known. 

The City That You Were

i was Jos
and
he was Lagos. i was the quiet streets of Rock Haven:
the houses separated by the heavy silence
of unanswered 'hellos' from neighbours.
the absolute conservation of shades the trees
cast here- was totally me. he. he was the busy streets of Obalende:
the unrepentant conductors yelling,
'Yaba! CMS! Yaba! Yaba!
the circular circulation of human sweat waving
through the air like Oxygen.
neglecting the weaknesses of island Ajebutters and JJC pedestrians. at night i was the city of J-Town after 8pm.
quiet. eerily so.
soldiers securing fences of the selected few.
smoking stuff and drinking liquor,
with AK-forty-somethings to bring down any rebel who dared to equal. he was the busy streets of Lasgidi at night:
the traffic, in French translated to, "la circulation"
right up from Admitalty Way through the Toll gates.
Cars honking, drivers cursing, almost excitedly at each other.
LASTMA officials obeying the call to rip-off 'rich' drivers. …
