Corduroy Heart - Poem by Nichola Okoro

Heart corduroy is terse

None sings with me

The chorus shift centripetally

The wind I accused, the secret



My fuss is bliss

You deprecate

I be a penguin

Gliding to Imo



Father -

Father your amputated arm

Fuss amend

Your performance locomote like light



Meretricious fuss

To meteor

That Sunday dawn

Shelter of Christendom

Shied me away.





There -

Their unmitigated cloak,

Can’t weed like you

Domestic Assault for spouses

The sluggard!



My mellifluous M. U. S. I C



On - lookers venerate you

You can’t hear me

I see you. I revere you

A stranger commends you

He thinks I were his sister
