TWO POEMS

By David Ishaya Osu

Thursday, February 2, 2012.

 
     WHAT WILL BE OF HER SPRING...?
Born of a bald yesterday
Bred in streets chaired by blind whores     
Hawking decayed libidos       
Arrayed in greed-tattooed breasts
Her bones          
Deep in the leas of her virgin groin      
Rusted cocks cracked         
As their rigid shafts planted watery arsenics
What will be of her spring...?
 

VOICES

 
I hear the chirpy         
Voices of clutches         
Warring against          
Clouds of sunsets         
Mingled at the crescent of mothers’ cleavage
Let this tempo          
Infernonize the sour map        
Of our farms          
They cried
