Endurance; My Maiden At The Foot Of The Sea
A maiden there lives, at the foot of the sea. She goes by the name a virture-Endurance, who my preying eyes caught at the west wind. She loves nothing in the world, except me, as my soul delights in her. My heart's knee is bent before her anaconda love. She has no self left, no fears, no wants... Nothing, except me. Divinity's eyes must envy her & me; for my eyes have made religion of her. My gusty love for her enchants the winged seraphs of Heaven....

Dances on the stage of time?

Would I meet loved ones like Bilkisu, Michael Jackson, Kessienasce or even our beloved president, Yar’dua? I watched these questions sailed away unanswered.

I woke up this morning with an achy thought of you. I looked for you in the photographs but you weren’t there. Then I walked to the faculty, I saw the imprints of you on the people you touched. I felt your ever refreshing fossilized presence on their faces, remembering the good old days that wrapped us together; the sadness and the happiness, ups and downs, your naggingness and your crude jokes…

The Unmaking Of Fate
1 I drove into the yellow
Setting sun and watched
The big blue sky narrow
The sun into red perspective

The Man From Philadephia
… Bathing dully in his pains, he collapsed. He was rushed
To the hospital as his situation at the moment demanded. It was quite obvious that his life like a nightmare of a stinking blackness, as of a running river, was running out him. Awakening into a wave of blinding pains, he restlessly feared the end of the beginning that now governed his body.

His body quivered in disbelief, eyes turned sore; for sanctuary suddenly became a morgue. The place that cradled him tenderly now burnt in fear and discrimination against him.

Yet causes not explained orally
The sun slays the sons of men
Countries run short of pottery contents
