the world is going to end soon


the world is going to end soon.


I look up into the sky at night so there will be no darkness, just the blazing light of billions & billions of stars, all falling.


 this made me feel shaky & scared.

but this place is all have, I have nowhere else to run to. How there's oil in my soul but am split with dry skin.


the world is going to end soon.

 here, I fold myself in prayer

to not fall into spastic illness before the end of the world.  so I took my fountain pen

like a sky holding the moon like a womb bears a baby. 

and this is how I found myself in this poem

like a harbage plant, planted beside the river Niger
