Contrey-Man I


…why me…

now I understand
against the mob / for the
my contrey-man won’t do anything

because he said
to me:

“why me? person for mob hand na
useless meat;
even vulture no dey lick ash”

because he likes to

see how wood creates a
hellfire to
dance in again for the boy / girl

lover of men or not;

be a bystander in the picture,
urging the
boy / girl to receive purgatory;

because he

does not like granting
punishment with a palm of

likes to punish the corruption this right way;
the law is corrupt, he has said…

because he likes to
offer a ritual to God / make atonement for the land / make light a scar
of memory for the unlucky mother,

chastise the irresponsible father
chastise contrey justice
give her good eyes. betta stick not blunt sword. correct scales. not meat scales…

because he did not think
Jesus’ body—
because I know he liked / loved men
and thieves—


called a lover of men / thief

broken by the mob.
