THE MKAR ENCOUNTER …A POEM BY KAYODE ODUMOSU

THE MKAR ENCOUNTER

“Msugh” . .No answer. No retort.

Then like red balls eyes a – burning

Cutlass raised conscience a – pricking

Our hearts turn to racehorses

Furlong by furlong unfolding and exhuming

A new trauma of experience

The Encounter

Communication impossible

Ah, the good Samaritan

The refreshing solace

Suddenly it is all over

The Encounter

Now, we can smell the roses

No, we can eat the guava
