Submissions via e-mail:



The left
Raised their hand
Deep into the darkness of the air
Anchored on nothing

The right
Anchored on nothing
Deep into the darkness of the air
Raised their hand

Parallel lines, the warlords retort,
Their meeting is to be infinitely postponed.



Poetry holds my hand
Her hand is cold
Her grip is strong
My lady may object
I ask Poetry
Who killed you?
Poetry says ghosts don't hold hands
Ghosts' grip wouldn't be this firm
Even if they do
Ghosts are figment of your psychosis
I ask like you?
Poetry smiles and says
All things in the end
Do not exist.




Alabi Oyedeji,  Sodiq Alabi, Iwo , Nigeria
