OUTSIDERS - By Fortune Oguzie Azuike

OUTSIDERS

We listen calmly
To the voices of milked goats and cows
in worshipful repose on their prayer-wheel

Still we travel many miles
Like second-hand children
With a borrowed surname

Can this side-saddle perch now
On Grandmother's arms
Keep us free from the hot sand?

Can the standing ponds bring respite
For the drudgery of the dry season
As we wait patiently
For the unending migration
Of our first meeting?
