Figures

pick a number,
one, three, seven:
only the odds,
so we both are even.

close your eyes,
don't be shy,
it's just the both
of us here
with our crazy minds
as audience;
only our crazy minds
as audience.

i said that twice already?
baby keep up.
we're duplicating thoughts
already.
now in your mind,
tick off all those numbers,
sway your mind
towards
us:
you,
and
me.

what we'd be without all the figures,
fighting our fights.
all the figures,
keeping track of time.
all the figures,
ageing our flesh.
all the figures,
eating our minds.

can we just be
without them?
love "pas blem".
that's French
for "no problem".
"when",
"if",
"might",
or "no",
we will do without.

pick a number,
two, four, eight
and
just
replace them,
all of them
with the image of me.

let me be all the numbers
you need
and you,
my pretty little thing,
all the numbers to infinity
for me.

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. …
