By Isaac Daramola

they gave no attention

to my words

rather love a life without

poetical complication

far they tempered the seat

with movements

which make them feel in control

of sincere null

a fooling of the brain

it’s one choice of living to hope

to pick the baton

on a lemniscate track and shit the bed

then scrub

for double couple years

or so

but trampling on bright bulbs

from the deep

feeling poetry is just an enigma of grammar.
