All I ask

By Rosemary Ekong

I ask that you swallow the rays of sunlight,

Undress darkness 

Spit light upon the night.

I ask that you rip open silhouettes,

Illuminate man

Step into his deepest intricacies…

I ask that you steal the moon,

Command times and seasons

I ask that you swallow the stars,

And ask for heaven’s forgiveness
