Abuja Darkness


Noel Ihebuzor


Blackness smothers Abuja,

the still night air, noisy

jammed with the cranky wails

of mournful monotone generators,

every space choked by sweltering heat

in this sweat drenched darkness,

#change waffles, wobbly…..

and the beauty of the faint stars

shines forth because of this

damp blanket of blackness
