Issue Three: Ojo Taiye

Motif of Pain

the scramble letters of
life, converse in diglossia
that its dead weight
mutters two syllable:
salty puddles, or

Memory and grief

Some things mama left undone:
a suckling who needs an urgent un pair
a galley attendant
a cotton ball to
Papa’s ichor
Some things papa left behind:
a red bank note
a tattered monument
all the things they both left behind:
memories marinated
in a bowl of grief
