One Windy Night

Poem By Padmore Enyonam Agbemabiese

on one of those windy nights
the moon would walk us into her lofty bed
where the stars will begin their stories
which no one would hear except you and me
there I will hold your face in my palms
look into the diamonds in your eyes
and when the sun returns with the dawn
it will take my garnished dreams
through subways to your heart
there will be songs from the flamingoes
waiting for us in the lilac- laden garden

Little Daisy

grow my sweet daisy
plant your roots within these veins
flourishing more so than
the grass that tickles your stem

On My 40th Birthday

last night
before I lay down to sleep
I prayed the Lord my shape to keep
to let no wrinkles come.

Can’t Promise Anything

I can't promise you roses
which bloom of brilliant red
but I promise, when you need me
as much as possible


we are the dog who caught the game
but are made to take comfort in the bones
beneath the master’s table

Cherished Friend

God knows there would be times
we'd need a word of cheer
want the face of smile
to brush away our tears

Broken Dreams (For Aka Logan)

(for aka Logan)

as children bring into your store
their broken African masks
