    One Of my favourite poetson WordPressis Robert Okaji. Below is an older piece. His words are always so thought provoking… And here is a link to a recent post of Robert’s

    Inquisition

    1.
    I breathe smoke
    from the fire
    warming our feet

    Something is not right
    but not wrong
    yet

    like the bones’ dance
    on wires
    in a bad dream

    Fear’s sharp blade twists
    burning with the slow
    heat of coals

    2.
    I cannot read ashes
    the message
    of cracked stones in desert light

    nor the poetry
    of the cow’s skull
    white on dark sand

    What right has a man

    And the snake’s
    quivering tongue tasting
    what the air brings to him
