Our Image


Dave Chukwuji

Our eyes are made
of glass and coloured stones
We lack
the long sight of our ancestors
who could see the gods

Our tongues are made
of rubber and imported glue
We lack
the charmed voice of our ancestors
who could talk with the gods

Our ears are made
of sieve and bottled wind
We lack
the intuition of our ancestors
who could hear the gods…
