Adesola Oladoja writes


oh that this twinkle will stay
to create an inferno
and last the night 
last the years

oh that this smile will never fade that
cut across my streams and valleys
munched, crunched to reappear
like cuds that billies chew

and if the night will, it could stay
stay my fears and daylight's shame
shame the light that scorns my look
when I know there can't be 'US'

oh that this moment will dwell
and I may all creatures tell
the joy in its pent up folly
the comfort that thus make me wholly

alas this twinkle won't stay
it is meant for miles away
