January: poetry by Nwilo Bura-Bari Vincent

Thursday, January 7th, 2010


Lone pacer –the vertical leader
With eleven followers – dust calm
Boots from December dusted
Whirlwind of celebrations calm and quiet
Day one in one stroked cage
Better spelt and wide but concise – January

Alibi flame’s flick flake fake rims of dreams
Hope is born and horned to nations of the world
January – mother to resolutions unbidden
Carryover of yester year’s plans and pains
Job uproar and tender pay packets ranched
Merriments subsides – upsides the devotion

Painting green on green-grass and green flags
Tender hearts hopes for a pope’s sprinkle
Hallelujah! – Bad luck aborted – new luck conceived
January, the plenary house of venial creatures
