HARMATTAN~by Tukur Loba Ridwan




Clumsy weather;
Dust and dry,
Almost lethal.
Skins are fried.
Wrinkled surface.
Peels on pores.
Healing bruises,
Even sores.
Pinching eyeballs.
Frozen nose.
Icing waters;
Warm to cold.
Freezing every
These and those.
Boiling waters,
Burning coals.
Night-time, blankets
Heads to toes
Couples, cuddles
And pillows…
Dirts, particles
Here and there.
Smokes adorning
Tens of layers;
Wrapped on torsos,
Limbs also.
Bodies shiver
High and low
Furnace, burners
Widows closed.
Body substance;
Cream or grease,
Lip-gloss, menthol,
Oils, at least.
Happening every
Every year but
