I am not a major poet? But Philip is? What makes Philip

a better poet than me? Because he wrote, "they fuck you

up your mum and dad, they may not mean to, but they do...?"

Who, in England, from a middle class family, was not

fucked up by his mum and dad? Who?

 - (excerpt from 'Why I Don't Like Philip Larkin' by Esiaba Irobi)

 

OLU OGUIBE

 

Seven Stations of The Cross

(For Esiaba Irobi)

                               


From Leeds to Liverpool,

Liverpool to London,

London to New York,

New York to Towson,

Towson to Athens;

The beaconer takes his bow in Berlin
And the exile becomes Myth:

Seven stations of the Cross.

I leave to live, said he
I exit to exist.
