TOLULOPE OGUNLESI


A Bridge Passing Under Many Waters
 
Glaring back
At the sun
With eyes shut
Feeling
Its fingers
Dye-stained
Peeling the silence
Of darkness
Layer by layer
With choruses
Of coloured chaos
 
The night
Wind whips
The moon
 
I mourn
The moon
 
I think
Of a bridge
Passing under
Many waters
 
The sun
Is God's
Precious gourd
Spilling warmth
On a frigid world
And its waters
 
Gourd's in its haven
All's right with the world
