COMPANION BY Olaseni Kehinde Precious

Written by Editor

To my belove companion,
Ears smells your voice from the shadow of wave;
Heart begins to shake its legs
Arm and leg turn insect

Your voice is as solemn as a stream;
That draws the feet of my duckish heart wit its cool palms
The moon of earth begins to get bigger and bigger,
My mind becomes Elephant

You’re like the spit of the sky in May,
You’re like the Stylist of Cornflower in June
You’re like a Mint that whitens the heart’s teeth,
You’re like a charcoal that darkens its foot

My ears can never detest the call of your aroma,
For you’re as beautifully dressed as my Poetry
Which rythm, pattern and sound twinkles like stars in milky way,
And speak with the weapon of words.
