comotions rent the heavens

Written by: Canny Amah

near these old outspoken rocks
behind the caves & waterfalls
& mounts that herald old tales
niger lads do their night’s rites
celebrating the age-long fairies
old queens in melodious voices
entoned to these chambers -
a priest appears with oblations
oh, the queen stands & frowns
& comotions rent the heavens!
