Yesterday Ii - Poem by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu
Yesterday reclines on the tenuous
breath of ancestral drums,
and summons protocols for the crowning
A martinet, yonder, celebrates the sepia
aura in the spine of the vista of the last days;
atavism unfetters the imprecation of hastening
And angels lengthen azure apparels,
their voices, rush-waves of ocean choir.
A dim light, coral,
sweeps the din of ululation atop
ravines of departed tribes...
Yesterday mocks the horrors of today.
Today, epoch of fistula,
chants verses of prurience
with a cadence of inebriation;
stench and febrile warmth
of sinister songs echo the dirges
Sensual nostalgia strum the
strings beneath the saddled soul
for the rebirth of Yesterday...
