Your lover
has a sneaky way
of hiding her poems;
inside her mouth
behind her neck
between her thighs.

kiss those places// find it all.

Text 15 Sep Body No Be Firewood

You have the right type of wood
for a fireboard
and my spindle makes brightly burning embers…
Come baby, let’s make a fire
Let the sparks fall on dried up twigs
And engulf us
Let the air around us
Snap, crackle and pop!
As we reach the very heights of heat

On this dry harmattan day
Laying spent, underneath this bare tree,
Lean in, let me whisper in your ear

"Wona body be firewood"

…I shared my body with you
I took your hands and led them to the hidden places
I let you touch me
I allowed my self to feel your touch
I was hungry
I’m not hungry anymore…

Text 31 Aug 5 notes My Poison


Didn’t I tell you to walk the other way?

Why didn’t you listen, why did you stay?

And now you are trapped here

With me near

You took a sip of my poison

It’s deep in your veins

Now it’s too late

It’s going to hurt you

You’ve never known pain
