Noche - Poem by Shola Balogun

Lluvia en mi lengua.

Piso trillado de camwood
cubierto de guijarros,

Luego caras ocultas y pasos
Extraños en las losas de
sacrificio,
Ojos que se arremolinaban en el
silencio inexplorado.

Empuje de labios vacilantes.

Ahora, podía escuchar los susurros
De la hora oscura Y saborear
Esta menta de mis lágrimas.
