'An Autopsy on a Falling Star' by Oladejo Abdullah Feranmi
Nights when we stood on clouds to speak about
the stars buried in tongues growing and sagging
our jaws to the future. How can you drink from
the river of truth? Hands to your ear hear the ocean
of lies washing the shores of your bloodline. The sunset
posed above like a spotlight shower each weighed
drop like hearts punching voiceboxes open.
