rivers of melted butter lurking behind walls

Written by Oluwafemi Babasola

rivers of melted butter lurking behind walls
(for K)

baby girl,
come let us chant
the tongues of fire
and the burning bush,

uncle moses watching
with no shoes.

let’s crumble our walls,
rivers of melted butter gushing
like july rain,

you and i swimming
like a pair of angelfish
in our oily home.

come. i want to hum
along the rhythm of
your singing hips while

we write a story with
no end.

Spread the love
