Poetry Play #30

poetry play

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Kawthar Babatunde


Let’s onto blank pages bleed

Peirce our souls with ballpoint needle sheltering inks


Let it bleed our biography

Let’s be the bards of our beginning


Death they say lurks at every angle

Life is ephemeral and

In a twinkle we might become memories

So tonight our story we must decide

Spell our lives in letters

Line our love on pages

Preserve ourselves in what used to be a tree


Let’s mould memories with the clay of alphabets

Like stars on night skies

Let’s portray our pain and pulchritude

From the hieroglyphics of our hearts

Let’s sprinkle our symphonies like holy water

On every floral face and feet


And as those floral face and feet thread

Each step will bear a piece of us

Their story will reek of us

As ours them


Yes, they shall be an envoy of our episodes

They shall be the tongues of thunder testifying our tales

To the ears of the earth

NB: Poetry Play is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7f5210ec
