SENTINEL POETRY (ONLINE) #15     FEBRUARY 2004

LOLA SHONEYIN

YOU SHALL LOVE AGAIN

once more, the joy buried
under the heaps
of sorrow-woven wreaths
Shall blossom on your lips

the aroma of love
shall flavour your sensitives
till you can taste it
on your fingertips

the rind of dreariness shall lie
in half-moons at feet
as the nectar of passion
inhabits your hips

and he?
his existence shall enjoy the glories
of plundered pirate ships.
