while it is easy to stare at each other,

not belonging here, and not anymore,

from when belonging aimed explaining time.

that’s it — time.

if I say i, if I say when, if I say anything,

there’ll be a mark.

even ‘that’s it’ suggests something.

you’re in Ibadan.

where I will love you.

there will be no I.

we will share black walls,

try to figure out lingala and arabic.
