IDP CAMP – BY ADEDAYO AGARAU
i am building a new home
in a tent of white fossils.
my children have the moon
in their navels and the sun
is a button blown in their bellies.
to make love with my wife
i let the crickets wake,
darling is a loud moaner
and I dig for the fruit of her lips.
we are building a new home
in a dark dark room,
no lantern to forecast
when peace shall come,
just a lonely moon
watching another soldier fall,
