1.The Poem AmbushAmbush by Gbemisola Adeoti The land is a giant whale that swallows the sinker, with hook, line and bait aborting dreams of a good catch fishers turn home at dusk blue Peter on empty ships all Peters with petered out desires.
The land is a saber-toothed tiger that cries deep in the glade While infants shudder home the grizzled ones snatch their gut from bayonets of tribulation halting venturous walk at dusk
The land is a giant hawk that courts unceasing disaster as it hovers and hoots in space
The land lies patiently ahead awaiting in ambush those who point away from a direction where nothing happens toward the shore of possibilities.
