LOVE IS FOR THE EVENING by Yugo Gabriel Egboluche

Read Time:21 Second

our grasses aren’t  green,

the kind of love that grow here

need not lay on them


our love is upright,

we love on our toes

under shades of bearded trees


our oaths are etched on trees,

which do more than bear our names

like signatures dotted on papyrus


our love is for the evenings

when cheerleaders go to roost

and we have only, but ourselves!
