Prayer after Food

Prayer after Food …………By Peter Onyancha

And – 
In your wisdom you covered it for sacred peace
And there is a secret piece of the sacred peace!

If only he could see mine transparent
And I saw his transparent 
The truth could cut deep!

A big bone lying across, like a dagger
Roasted meat, coal deep beneath
Dripping wine from the leaking roof
Bubbling belching seeping upward
Listen when he burps!

A green-house effect of shrubs 
Voluntary velvet of kales
pushing the former layer
Round pebbles of cold ugali, supporting the green jungle
Water for soft landing, sprinkled with salt
Tight valve to vet what must leave
Insulting data!

And my brother will see
And I will see
You see!
