Stop spot dot by Noel Ihebuzor

can you spot
the dot
when you stop
on top of a tilted pot

where you stop
matters, as a dot
is a particle just like you
a particle in a circle
is hot, a core spot
if at the centre of
that circle the dot
inhabits and roams
randomly within

do you not know
not every presidot
smokes pot to port
to unknot

some port to unknot
simply because of rot
they speak thoughts
like a horde of noughts

empty thoughts, no core just hollow
and hollowing
blank thoughts
no nucleus, just
inyo, more inyo
nested in incoherence

circles of blankness
prodigy in void,
nought in form
format and content

a random effluvia
rich in rot, riot
like droplets and
dribbles and drivel
from the tongue
of Bob Loco

Loco smokes pot
goof and ganja
plus oza echetaram
echetaram hot stuff
(takes jabs and sniffs in secret)

our circle-dotter
like Loco cannot spot
the boundaries of
today and tomorrow
nor of the past, the present and or the future……

and the drift continues
Onyemaechi and
Onyemauwa ask
when the end will begin
or whether this is the
end of a beginning
or the stop of the end
or the end of a pot
