Solemate

The PenetrationYou are tall and handsome and tall. The frame of your body seems to be cutting through the rows and rows of plantations. Your hair dancing wildly in the wind. You are not wearing your usual hat, the one you wear when you don’t want the rest of the world to see you as…

The B-word

We are not talking. Correction: We are not talking to each other. I am talking to people other than you. You are speaking to others who are not me. On the night I tried to offer a reconciliation, the next morning Muslims were meant to wake in the wee hours to have their debut wali…

Hide Your Rainbow

No word comes from her well-moisturized lips the entire matatu ride. She has the window seat and uses it correctly. Staring dreamily as the part of the world rushes past us. A smile is playing on her lips. She is enjoying the rush. I am enjoying watching her watch the expanse we call our city…

Muse

It excites me to be the heartbeat of someone’s creation. Forget the handiwork of God, He has already proven Himself a Master Creator. Look at you! Except I would make a pretty bad video vixen (I have tried and tested it) as my mind cannot fathom the expectation of my entertaining the camera showing all…

Checker

I think about madness sometimes. The degree of it swirling in the functionality of my brain.

And definitely, without lying about it to secure an…

Blow Off

Her long legs are dangling on the high stool she is occupying. A little of her ass is squeezed out, floating due to the pressure exerted by sitting. Infront of her, is a tall glass of wine she sips from while observing her surroundings. They do not serve cocktails at this particular bar. Its clientele…

See Through

The first time he touches you, it is between your thighs. His left grazing the innermost part of you as the right covers the outside. When you turn around in shock to meet his face, he apologizes. He says he thought the body bent over the fire was his woman, your mother. He further adds…

Isaiah 1:18

Happy New Year!Yes, we are on the 2222 vibrations! Since we are beginning the year, it is only right to set my resolutions since the other year began, this same 2022 for you and none of that was put down for me. I may do many things. I may end up doing nothing at all…

Eventable

Over the past year, I have followed many artists from the events I have been privileged to be part of the audience. These connections led me to more artists which brought more events my way. Therefore, I did not live in gloom. Unnumbered, that way no one thinks I am favouring others, some of the…
