Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Any, anybody!


Any, anybody!
Antipathy
Of the Red Rose and the White Rose;
Walks of life,
Of the Red Sand and the White Sand;
The milestone!
Of the Red Sea and the White Sea;
Like a dream! !
Of the Red Country and the White Country;
Sleeping with tow women on the same bed!
Of the Red Continent and the White Continent;
North-West Wind!
Of the Red River and the White River;
Clash of the cultures! !
Of the Red Land and the White Land;
From above!
But, who is your friend?
Fake name! !
Wrong identity;
Contrivance,
Whispers,
But, who is your lover?
Let's move! !
Let's love,
Let's care for each other;
But, who is your farmer?
Be, beyond!
I will always talk about it;
Rod, road!
Take it,
Try it,
Use it;
Lent, excellent! !
And like the Red Shoes and the White Shoes;
Lent, learnt!
Of the Red Colour and the White Colour.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
