Kojo Owusu Poems
Comments about Kojo Owusu
The caryatid - Procession etched on the vague spires
Of fear - the silent strides on the prescience of night
Black shadows with dire aspirations pursued
The lone mournful procession embarked
On the uncertainties of convictions and power engendered
In the quietude of noble ambitions
The spires echo the clangor of the thuds of feet
Timorous and brave.
The procession - the call of the sirens to the holy figures
The mosaic saints in the anteroom of eternity
The deluge of torrents to lave the cry of the damned
In the boulders of echoing despair
The emergence ...
Eddies of the hearth whirled behind
Me when I deserted the hut for your
Benign showers. I could hear the
Despairing noises of those shadows as
They furiously entered the dark fissure
Of the muddy wall. Angered shadows
With a vague prescience of my fate.
The threshold crumbled and lightening
Struck the eaves and the rafters.
