Abnormal man

A man I know

Who heads a crackling

Mud house built

On the cliff

Of an ancient ant hill.


The shrine speaks of

Him so often to Ezemmuo.

And Ezemmuo whispers

Aloud to us: "That man 

Has his head cat and rat!"


His children are sickly

With ricket and their

Teeths starve for meat.

They say each time I

Offer them a plate:

"Keep the plate and have us!"


This man I know

Fights for a portion

Of the kitchen with

Three house wives.


This man is a pot bellied

And fat stuffed in the

Flesh kind of man

Whose stomach is fatigued

With children plates.


He is a man who

Fills even his scrotum

With precious coins

And rumbles in rage:

"We should borrow!"


When the winds give

Birth to hurricane

Which makes love to tornado

This man sleeps on his mat

And let's his mud house

Dance with chaos.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
