Grief Na My Comrade by Ahmed Aisha

We mold our grief into blended flavor, wrapped it into rizla & lit it — we marked our lines as heavy puffs started rolling on.

I talk about my grief most days/ of how my throat flung dry and my smile spread to the faint shade of gloomy seconds that flew to years.

 I decided to end my words with— “start over again” instead of “goodbye”— to chew the rest fantasy that popped out of me like the crown of cock.

Today— I’m on the verge of ending this plague that broke every limit to be my part— me.

But as e be, grief na my comrade.
