Poem By Femi Folami

And I blew you a kiss,
sent it sailing, sent it soaring
on the winds of Oya, to keep
you safe, make you warm.
And I knew that goodbye,
was a beginning, just beginning..
of a new life you see, of a new life for me,
and I labored and laughed at my impudence.
Wondering where did it come from?
this 'she thing' made of 'he thing'
and I laughed and I loved my lost innocence.
And that kiss that I flew and sent sailing to you
on the wings of a prayer, on the winds of Oya,
set us free, made me strong
us be...all alone.
She and I now full grown,
and we both wonder at your absence
and ignorance.

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


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


Reach into memory,
remember unions,
unspoiled, unbroken...
dry those cleansing crystals,

Albert C.

So simple then
to ask that
all that would
