just a girl from Ghana


Sharp teeth and claws

your twilight howls,

Nipping at my fleeing heels.

Bright and hungry smiles

hide dark and vagrant desires,

But what you think I have to offer

is just a buried, empty coffin.

These savage lies

feed dreams and doubts-

words of love

dappled, glistened venom-

try not to listen,

they are vapor and vacant

as the mouth that speaks them.

Fleshless bones,

and flies that hover,

the bodies chewed and mangled,

strangled by the knots you’ve tangled.

Tributes to the lives you smother

you’ve swallowed, oh, so many

even your harsh and faceless mother,

Yet this one you sorely covet,

Will never be your poor and seedless,

graceless lover.
