Grief on Painted Sheets is a permanent proof that grief cannot gag creativity, even as the beauty of poetic expressions cannot dull pain or relegate tears. As you read this collection, expect the unexpected, because the pain-propelled train of thoughts in this collection will launch you into the center of mourning and keeps the screams of the victims echoing.
Grief on Painted Sheets’ is the reaction of Nigerian poets to the killings in Nigeria. In this collection, words came to life in livid lines and veracious verses and truncated the silent injustice – lyrics became tissues to dab sorrow-laden faces as poetry sought to become lullabies for eyes scared of sleep and dirges on the bedhead of those laid to eternal sleep.
