Meet Ijeoma

By Ridwanullah Solahudeen

Meet Ijeoma

This is Ije,
She's the radiance in the solar,
She will come tonight
And the stars will come too,
But she'll shine brighter than them, I bet
She's the moon
Do you know?
When I read the dark map in her eyes
I saw the way to her heart
Obiaruku, Abraka -- too many cities I've been meaning to see
Her eyes are the centre of the heaven --
The Oracle -- who told me that
Delta is a beautiful land to explore
These words are silent verses
Spoken lines on Zhur and Asr
The walls of this house
Should eavesdrop on me.
