WANTING By Abiodun Salako

Written by Editor

To Taffy

“If it is ever plain, Cleon, a wanting man is a man of many short lives.” Lucretius


A field of swollen phalluses

Yellow like corn, black as

rain on a funeral day and

heavy with apple seeds.


Abiodun Salako writes under the nom de guerre Neptunus. He is a wild addict, leprechaun, editor and art collector. He is also a practicing neo-hedonist, neo-pagan and a resident at Sea.
