Whereas - Poem by Uche Nduka

Mightier than
two and two.

Only this,
only this, only this-
to serenade the tripletree.

Whereas blazing at
the edge of speech

even trifles
have grown spiteful.

Not forgotten:
a song in rags

wandering goallessly
through attics, scrublands

never getting lost
never getting found.
