adaobi (1)

adaobi is lifeless.
on a cold september night of 96' he sits and smokes his favorite Henson and Benz at mama obi's bar just along the town square.


 it is raining heavily, the kind of rain that made him wonder who had enraged Chukwu.
he daren't go home to his wife this late. the bitch would rave on and nag about his irresponsibility and stupidity. not that he minded his wife's insults. he himself knew how irresponsible and stupid he was. irresponsible enough to impregnate ada in the first place and stupid enough to have thought of telling his wife of the latest development...
nwosu was an unfortunate man. wrong things men in his age group did flawlessly, nwosu's chi made sure he paid dearly for in ten fold. other men had external affairs with women outside their marriages but the one time he tried, he got the beautiful adaobi pregnant. adaobi the girl young enough to be his first son's agemate. and somehow his chi's punishment came with a blessing because the young beautiful adaobi loved him dearly. it was his eyes she said, they were so sad and piteous...

When my answers come

Life was designed to last once for every individual and as much as that sucks, it is true. We roam through life trying to figure out the true essence of existence and while that urge might be higher in some, it is lower for others. 
I mean, who cares about all of the serious stuff in life right? Roll up some weed, light it, smoke up some dose of daily conviction. Look forward to a what could be a better alternative for essence.
Truth be told, every single one of us humans on the surface of Earth, have that moment. A time when probably in a car driving to work, amid the endless news on the radio, it hits you- the realization of something beyond every individual you pass by on the streets, every nod you get in response to your greeting, every shade of pupils you've stared into.

And yeah, while some might boldly step out and share in an engaging tone, how, they realized, once, years back, the X, Y, Z, that led to making a significant decision in their lives, I sit there and wonder. I wo…

SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN

seven minutes in heaven;
seven minutes counting
heart beats by the second.
six minutes in heaven;
all the while tapping feet
on shaky wooden floorboards
in nervous delight.

five minutes in heaven;
five minutes counting
down to reality:
a beastly, slimy one.
four minutes in heaven;
wondering if by chance
or luck or grace,
a glimpse of an angel
 would suffice.

three minutes in heaven,
and lo a ladybird atop
your nose tickles,
dances, wiggles, jiggles,
then away,  flies.
two minutes in heaven,
two minutes or the next,
daydreams finally might come
to be:
visions of sunny skies,
silly side aching laughs_
chocolatey gums,
all on display
for my ever aching eyes.

a minute left in heaven
the last, the longest,
the shortest it seems,
the last before you wake
and stare at
the computer screen
in a crowded
noisy bureau,
someplace.

you sigh.
"of course it was unreal."
