My Poetry Ii - Poem by Oluwatosin Richard Shiba Aribo

My poetry….it is a reply,
A battle cry……...an uppercut,
It is a proof…...a wish…….a statement,
A struggle.

It is a gift….
A commentary, my alchemy,
my alibi.

My poetry is a decision,
An affair

It is a squint….an emotion,
An idea…a motive,
A will,
Travail,
A wail,

My poetry is a sigh,
Sleep walk……
A reality….a frown….a fear,
A seed….a recoil
A grimace.

A gathering of clouds

It is a spirit….
A mug shot….
A clamor…
A riot….
A boycott,
A confession….
Confrontation…..
Demonstration ….
Remonstration….
Wistful bile that crawls from the pit of my stomach,
Up into my mouth….

I spit it out.
