Rex mayor Ubini

(March 8th,1984. / Nigeria.)


Why think I need you
When inside of me there are two
Your presence beckons the serpent
Striving to have my faith bent
And Yet you make me more helpless
By your cold electrical caress

Hey you Loneliness
You belong to the wilderness
Take your cold hands off my shoulder
And sit not by to feign a good lover
I would rather lock myself in solitude
Than tarry in this seashore with you.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
