David Ishaya Osu


Eve

 

the burning candle is also cold
is there a song in your house
your shadow is naked: you
undo your navel and let
the egg. one boom of
moonlight and you
return to look for
your secrets in
in the ashtray
is a precious
………..eve

 

 

Confluence

 

for all of us
wine will be
tomorrow

nuts nor not
talk beside
yellows

fill the stars
to your laugh
sister, you

and only
you can lily
back to blood
