‘Through the eye of a gun, every man is a country..(Peacemaker)
I read poems from FRAGMENTS IN A CLOSET by Daisy Odey at Maitama Amusement Park yesterday.
I was under breezy trees, amidst bright flowers and in warm sunlight.
You hold the sun in your mouth,
and tell me the taste of light..(Tourist)
Do not be fooled
by their fragrance
they come with thorns.(Broke)
I was my mother’s daughter before I wore my father’s name.(Feminist)
I haven’t read from this chapbook since I left Kaduna some months back. Rereading poems help unearth new dimensions and treasures.
I’ve been in Abuja since last week for my Call to Bar Screening. As I type this I’m preparing to head out to the Supreme Court to continue the screening process. I carried this poetry chapbook with me. Hopefully, if I meet up with Daisy Odey today she will autograph this complimentary copy she gave me at its YELF Book Chat.
