Collins Aiterebhe

Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

WE CAUSE TALL TREES TO SPRANG

Unbusy Lagos train swells my chest to dark memory
'Shift, shift' - crowded pews of high cathedrals
No seats even
Yet Pale love hammered hatred
'Kill am; kill am' - a vire wind
Empty deaths of old mind ghost wreck havoc
Wandering passions concur to selfish instinct; hypocrisy
'Eyah! Eyah!' We move on
On the harshest wing of irony
I swing through the spaces of thoughts
With shallowed hope
I indict the travails of my soul to taste justice
I had never thought of it
How so lonely I am here
Leaders; downpressors offer heidious promises of burnt bread
To achieve their eternal targets of fair flowers
And appease a retrogressive change in broken ladders
Before this black dream I write time - be prepared
Oppressors determine the nature of struggle
Time has date in the memory of pain
Tall trees shall spring these barren zones
To avenge this viral swung of red fire-flies

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
