I am sharing this little piece today in preparation of what’s coming later today. A couple of poems I wrote are going to be appearing in an anthology book together with many other talented poets from Africa at large, available to download at 7:00pm (6:00pm CAT).
Give me more than forever
Add a day after it.
Speak to me in unsaid words
A look, a smile, a twitch of a hand.
Be sure that I’ll know what you say.
Like a puzzle.
Fit in here and there.
Or a gift
That will take me forever to unravel.
I guess I just want to reassure you
I’m here to stay
For forever and a day
