Photographs

a black Sudanese kid drowning
in the largeness of his pants
weaves a basket of history
with the facial hair of his ancestors
just to make ends meet.
while a group of tourists take photographs of him,
soldering them to words. their intentions scorch
like vapors of boiling water

Transmutation

In time you will tread this road,
Modified by adjectives of sufferance,
This road shrouded in cloaks of hunger,
Where the only source of nutrition for malnourished dreams,
Are tears from their raining eyes and mucus from their leaking nose.
It is then you will metamorphose your fantasies,
Into variegated amount of living lights,
You will pluck the fruits of nature and tweak their algorithms,
To produce a food chain of abundance,
You will wage wars alongside antibiotics,
Against the avid goddess of dysentery,
Lo! You will look at yourself slowly,
And denounce those doctrines of throwing,
Diatribes at the effulgence of science.
