By ‘Segun Oriogun

I want to kiss you everywhere
That hurts,
I want to lie
In your battlefields
And dream of houses
That smell of wild flowers

Do not let people heal you
With saliva
They will take away
Your power of walking straight
Hold your broken body together
Sink in spring waters
And be born anew; goddess

I want to hold you
And watch you grow
Into a fire bird.

N.B: ‘Segun Oriogun is a talented poet who lives in Ikare Ekiti and writes to stay alive. Keep the ink bleeding!
