Swamp songs by Oguns Peter

Swamp songs

The night sings of a melody
That the day only reveals’
Its black cloak reminisces *
*The distasteful meat in a waif’s mouth

Its overbearing shroud
Makes living – a bitter voyage
chirps, swamp – songs and
a voyeuristic moon
shrills and scurry *
*the creaking wind in the trees

the night sings of a melody
that the day only reveals’
