Poems: Through a Broken Mirror by Olajide Salawu

By Olajide.Salawu on 5 Dec, 2014

Eyes

 

my eyes are two pair of nuts

cracking illusion

videos of life

foaming imagination of mind

 

 

Doubt

 

when people see

a pair of sea

they begin to select

which one is their death

 

Anger

 

The scene is an open sea.

the woman is the shark

the children are little dolphins

playing with Tiger blade

they are going to be playing

till in the mid-scene

one of them will have a cut

and blood will drip on the silent water

then the shark will light up

like raging sun on night

she is going to maul the little

children till the stage becomes

red sea, then quietitude, then end.
