I could not get ahold of life
By Oladejo Abdullah Feranmi
So I write like the poems are not mine,
and I stare to see the world from your eyes,
a streetlight spotlighting winter and your palms
unsnowing the air into something softer.
And we smile into our hands, saying; look at us,
look at us here, growing only to wilt into time.
