LIFE (A Poem) by Su’eddie Vershima Agema

The stars put out their lamps
Leaving the grey sky
The moon compensating, smiled meekly
A clear ball
Different from yesterday’s banana
I stayed an eternity with you
But just as my heart counted a second
The night rolled its mat
Bringing in the harsh reality of day.

(From Bring our casket home: tales one shouldn’t tell. Makurdi: SEVHAGE, 2012)
