Ring A Heart - Poem by Odoh Okenyodo

See your name; it rings a bell
No. It rings a finger. Nearly there.
But it rings my heart
It wrings my heart

I remember Zuma rock
Hearts swinging back-forth
Dilemma-ing in the rain
Wishing to wash pain

Twitter... your name is a hash
It tags itself to my heart
It reminds of Baga
All for which I apologise

I behold Zuma's solid tears
They are frozen and ever-there
How does history tell her it's sorry?
Only she knows how much she's hurting

How dare I say I know how you feel?
I'd be spraying pepper on injury
Nevetheless, I look forward to saying hi
Even if there's nothing more for you and I

But there'll always be...
Eh...something called memories
Like kisses over vegetables at La Monde
And tears over you, like none
