Ibara in the sun

The thin lines of blushes around her velvety face makes a goddess out of her,
Layers upon layers of brown corrugsted roof 
Just like head gears to an Owanbe party
Bridge at the junction looking down Omida
Like pancakes in a hot oven
Hawkers in various ware, walking down the street.
The rain of her beauty drenched my shadow;

Stars and galaxies came down on the little town
Mood melt, and the day became slippery 
And I fell in love.
I fell in love with the cacophonous market,
Scent of green leaves mixed with red chillies,
And some fish in the tray- dancing.

I said to the passing bird;
Come! Come perch on my sleek shoulder  
Take this letter to my sweetheart,
Tell her I've fell in love with a nodal town
Sing her blues, some purple rain,
And some balads in metaphor. 

A damsel in the fluorescent sun
Her flower blossomed by the warmness of the heated air,
And she danced to the sounds of the striped green taxis going to and fro
Some toward Lafenwa,
Some to a sea of heads at Sapon
And some toward a destination where Lisabi kisses the ground..

Fate is what happens
When the chicks break and crack
From inside to life.
