Reach

Poem By Femi Folami

Reach into memory,
remember unions,
unspoiled, unbroken...
dry those cleansing crystals,
Let Love Flow Again...

Say it three times softly,
in a whisper, in a whisper
Shout it once...just for luck,
then move on.

Cross yourself my dear,
it will get better and you
know it.
It will never be the same,
when all that pain is gone.

Reach into memory, touch the circle...
feel it pulsing, light a candle,
watch it flicker
dancing shadows know your name.

Reach into memory,
touch the center,
hold it gently,
let the oil warm a little,
You are annointed,
Let it pour!

She chanted holy words,
my momma did.
And me, listening all
the while from the inside,

Reciprocity

And I blew you a kiss,
sent it sailing, sent it soaring
on the winds of Oya, to keep
you safe, make you warm.

Ahhhhhhhhh

Aminatu cries when she makes love,
while Abena whispers.
And I sit watching, waiting.
I think the sky is falling,

So simple then
to ask that
all that would

I.

We can come
together,
