Defining My Country

By Shitta Faruq Ademola

a thistle

sprouting for votive

to the sky lark’s nests

up on a tree

a blood

laboratories embracing


maples worshiped in

the East

churning the tongue of


fire forebears

the ancestor of red


Satan’s deception

Adam’s apple

Eve’s treasured stupidity


a stomach marrying

thirsty worms

a wound that never heals

Pharaoh’s obdurateness

a nylon floating

for survival
