Chicken wey run way from borno go Ibadan go still end up inside pot of soup
I am not interested in disclosure i am interested in discharge
To replicate but not survive
// u have to trap it first// reimagine the boundaries //
Swinging with whatever we can get our hands on
Motherfuckers better duck
-The body – does – not affect – or modulate –
I want to lay down in the place i am from
The auto sacrifice begins _ the night becomes the mouth
If u r silent for long enough u can hear my body fill with colours In a language you will never understand

-Precious Okoyomon, 2018
