SEDATES OF PASSION

by Eriata Oribhabor

…it’s happenstance berthed from the blue, keen-riding the corners and centres of our collective space…

…genuineness, written in bold letters of sincerity and warmth speaking rare uncommonness…

…collaboration of willing hands walking as fortressed rainbow of comeliness…

…flying ribbons of enchanting colours decorating tomorrow’s pavements today…

…farmers sweltering sweats of creative outflows dug from meanings, reasons and seasons…

…it’s happenstance berthed from the blue, keen-riding the corners and centres of our collective space…

…a stretch of creativity interpreted by shades of human calculations either open handed-welcomed or concocted-stabbed…

…deaths; unresolved riddles, burning and sagging passions, hopes and forlorn lanes, timeliness and forgotten dreams…

….it’s die-hard selflessness running veins driven by sedates of passion…

…it’s happenstance berthed from the blue, keen-riding the corners and centres of our collective space…

…who takes a killer pill wanting spills of wads served across broken paths of political lunacy?

…who holds a touch rummaging paths of popular lucre avoiding a drink of filth?

…it’s happenstance berthed from the blue, keen-riding the corners and centres of our collective space…redirecting perspectives.
