Officer X - Poem by Morakinyo Temiloluwa Bolarinwa

Carry me home with you,
beyond the boundless sandy plane,
these angry hungered shrubs,
to the midst of the seven hills,
the calming whispers of the bar.

Carry me home with you,
in the anguish on dead faces,
the weepings,
impossible grasps of a million love,
out the daily horrors of belief,
or lies, or money, whatever the cause.

Carry me home with you,
on shoulders that soon may companion,
bags of useless air, plank of unfelt wood,
papers of archived ink, heart of vengeous zeal,
epitaphs of irrelevance, thougts that be eternal.

Whatever,
just carry me home with you.
