roasted, or fried, or boiled
Just serve me a well-cooked poetry.

by Joel Oyeleke Ifeoluwa


I would be a glutton,


I would be hungry till infinity.

If poetry is a meal placed in my front;

I would carefully consume its sweetness,

For lo! I would eat and eat till eating becomes my alter-ego.

With a spoon, knife and my hands;

I would first eat the seasoning of personification,

Then I would pounce on the ingredients of imagery,

I would enjoy the savour of musings,

I would taste the aura of creativity.

For a well-cooked meal,

I become the consumer,

Poetry becomes the consumed.

Just serve me the meal

And leave the rest to the portrait of a poet,

For he would become a Shark

And poetry becomes Jonah.

Be it roasted, fried or boiled;

Just serve me a hot plate of poetry and watch me devour its aesthetic beauty.
