Poem: AREMU

image
There are men who ride with guns,
Men who have
Used their guns to kill
And would use them
Again.
And then there is you
Aremu
You kill with your sweet tongue
Your eji
And those dimples that should be forbidden
When your recent conquest is crying and crumbling
As the fire in her eyes dies
Somber embers of amber
Yours take on a new shade of gold
The sound of a broken heart
Is a victorious drumbeat to you
Like horses riding home after a war.
-Smallee
