a post showing Moyo OKediji art piece

Ela, Offspring of Olodumare

Jumped in my Jeep,

started the engine to warm it

and listen to public radio

for 5 minutes.

Jumped out.

Ex-marine neighbor,

calling across the street:

“Mayu, come here.”

Me: Not coming. Too dangerous. Not safe. Covid 19 is ravaging Texas.

Ex-marine neighbor: I don’t like you Mayu. I’m going to get you out of this neighborhood.

Me: Who cares if anyone doesn’t like me! I fear no foe as long as Olodumare loves me.

Ex-marine neighbor: What is Aladumla?

Me: Google it.

I went indoor

slammed and locked the door
