ajayi olubunmi kolade Poems
Halved. In years, for years And through years, in halves I was halved.
The Day The Sun Sang
The moon stood, The sea sank, The mountains melted, And no man died,
A strange calm Amidst great noise. The Hollow Conduit replaced, and The new in place, solid. Therefore
Days After Death
Of man is nothing more said than in few days after his death life’s not rated, until late.
In dark I walk, In the day I war, through gropes. And dark seem dear for shrouding the lane-distaste to sight.
It climbed. Up it climbed. The Scree firm. I saw it, before it was seen. Feathery though, it stole gravity.
The Living Death
I Thou embraceth men, For their poor mien, The sight thou lovest to behold
Halved. In years, for years
And through years, in halves
I was halved.
One, dual, many and millions.
Still ’twas whole and
Now reduced. Sartoli pruned.
And time tames to train
In the tail of epididymis.
