Lagos Diaries – Episode I

Every time a white man is officially exonerated of guilt for killing a Black man/child/woman in a public case, the morning after, many European-American strangers avoid making eye contact with me.

They make you feel uncomfortable in your clothes, telling you to change the way you dress, while they’re having extramarital affairs.  They purport […]

For the Poets

Posted March 21st, 2013 by in Poetry

This is for the poets who didn’t sleep last night Scrambling in the dark to find a pen to write That rhyme with As time went And half your mind was written down Just as the sun crept around The other side To bring you light This morning when you still weren’t done Laying down […]
