SPECTACLE

 

 

Blue lights are illuminating the air

filled with fake white powder rising,

the anticipation climbing;

Mic cuddle mouth to the awe of sight.

Our souls are left in sonorous care.

 

 

 

 

 

TICK

 

 

Per hour,

per second;

clock wise, anticlock wise,

the gentle clock hand

tuck.

Life is passing like dispersing

seeds

on the harmattan wind

dancing unseen,

moving far away into

the future.
