Ayomide Israel Atitebi


Let Me Be!

I am the tendrils
of a tuber
sprouting from your earth.
I, the forming zygote!


They say I have eaten
of the rotten apples
fetched from the devil's
bowels: Yet, only I
have seen your face! !


Just let me be-
a bard-
sucking at will,
from knowledge's long lost love! ! !
