Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Monowi


Monowi, on, moon, win, mono, in, won, no, own;
To criticize!
Purely personal,
And, at loggerhead.

Lust!
No matter how hard the chicken dances,
It would never please the hawk.
Cup, coup!
Installed,
Cop, coup!
Noted,
But, at loggerhead with the controversies.

Life in the town,
With vengeance and hatred!
And, like a stumbling block;
With the muse of the nature of things around.

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
