Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu Poems


Endloser Regen
Nach der Sintflut kommt die ausgehungerte Ebbe

Extinct grief.

Before light’s encroaching
Beams, across wavelengths
Of glints, in between yawning
Protocols of waking,

This Heritage

In this arid circumstance,
on a collage of sacred pulses,
this pot - Heritage - merely sits,
smoked and besmirched by elements
