ODE TO BARA

Journey man Chef of Choral cuisine Sunset at Dusk Drained of Melanin A voice heard across generations Stilled in immirimious waters Strange silence As hearts fearfully flutter What deafening silence is this? An iroko has communed with the grass Chills crawl up macho spines This Hero here has joined eternal climes Adieu, brother Adieu, Bara.
