Sire-Land By Nura S. Abubakar

sire-land

The land is a scalpel
that incises well beings
without prowess of surgery.

The land is a termite
that eats innards of our ladders
like parasites in a bay window.

The land is a carpenter
that makes trouble-like-stools
for bottomlessness to sit on.

We are bricklayers on scaly scaffold
fixing blocks in dismay
like goats in a swimming pool.
