Peninsula

You’re the epitome of stupid You’ve wasted my time and yours Not a single soul—Even cupid! Couldn’t get you off all fours   Such a flirt? Well you can have her You’re not a lover but a fool! If I struck your heart with a […]

Weighted Words

June 11, 2018 5:14pm | Manuel A. Morillo

Words are precious Like heirlooms that can be traded or lost we hold them close Words are common Used to tell a story, give a command, or simply describe they are sprayed everywhere Sprayed not spilled or dropped they seemingly hold no weight in any […]

Pageant Girl

June 9, 2018 9:41pm | Neima Belewa, Jane Oyekan

Death of Love Undone -Poem

June 9, 2018 9:37pm | Neima Belewa, Victor Nwogu

Bubble Coat

June 8, 2018 10:37pm | Kelechi Ihejerika

What a design! It looks pretty new. Is it holographic? That’s a neat shade of blue! I answered the comments, with an esteemed yes. But someone called it fake. That put me in distress. No it’s not, I replied. Just feel it and see! He […]

Appearance

June 8, 2018 10:36pm | Kelechi Ihejerika

My pencil skirt is purple and new. It doesn’t really reach my knees. Since everyone is infatuated with my attire, No matter how short, I am no sleaze.   My red lipstick has broken in two. The difficulty it took to apply, It bleeds on […]
