brown-new~by Ayoola Goodness Olanrewaju




you do not know brand new— peace & your soul:
save you know how to dam the world
& all wisdom. how to fool in love again with your woman. & 
every familiarity that comes with dawn.

unless you know how to open. like me— void.
& your woman fall. full. & fool into you. perhaps

foolishness is to brand new. but

the world is
wise. twice wise to fool in love. mystery. she is ruined.

& truth. nothing is brand new. if you so desire.
bird & universe. you will find peace. vast—fasten only to wings of

i am holding a torn night here in a yellow
taxi. i look out the window. no new lights here. &
lights common are bright spirits of darkness. a boy brands in

a tattoo shop. he is drawing his skin to grief. a dragon on
his chest. & if you are wisdom to bullet.
you are a brother.

children city here in bullet- proof bodies. searching for
peace. mini girls & mini-gowns— naked wee-pins. i cannot watch it.

flip the night. &
before beauty. beast. brawl. blood.

a last beep gasping at your face
