(in collaboration with an aesthetic young poet; Olanrewaju Moses)

Your beauty is timeless
Yes! It could stop a clock
Your attractive figure; a burglar
Do burst, ev’n worthless heart
You ‘re legitimate in robbery
Of the reasoning faculty of the wise
Your smiles are heart attacking
Hold captives, strongest of monsters
You ‘re an amorous beast
Feeds on proposals for feast

In deep reminisce of those days;
Under that guava tree,
Where birds peeped into our love says
Stretching emaciated neck like sunlight rays
There, I set my steaming feelings free
Woman! you jabbed my love with your echoing nose.

Bees buzzed around the honey in my brain,
Genuflecting to sing serenades to my ears
Still, you left me in the rain
Ev’n after those haunting years,
When my legs quivered at your build, with sorrow
I soar’d still into sullen light of the morrow

Age scanty as twenty;
Your lust lingered in the alfresco of elites
The sheet of your amply fragranced bed
Wet from sweat of stale night adventures
Wands of currencies poked from your purse like vultures
Then, I perceived eroticism fully fed.

While branches sprouted from trees,
And seeds birthed, blossomed of flowering mothers
After five decades of the first cry,
You cuddled wrappers alone; desolate as the desert
Eggs crying in ovaries within- the agony none could exact!
Never embraced marriage,
Perhaps, you wanted to mar-age

Aaaargh! Forget not, visiting days
For the young shall grow
And the past will crow
Do not take it for fate
When hope can’t rely on faith
And beauty masked by cracky face

A new leaf begins with a pause
Gaze now, beyond the grinning purse
Lest, your lust is embraced by menopause.
