CHIKA UNIGWE

Simon Nkeazi

I shall rescue your name
From these ashes I throw
Where you willed
Across a sea vast
Vast like the palm of your hand
It was the biggest palm I ever saw
With branches trailing off to your finger-tips
You used to tease me
That those were the palms
On which the world stood
And I believed you then
Just like I believed you were invincible
You
Whom the gods loved
Who had death
Secured in his pouch
I shall call out your name
Again and again and again
And you shall live once more.
