A GLIMPSE OF MEMORY IN SLEEP By Ogah Friday David

A GLIMPSE OF MEMORY IN SLEEP

I miss the
ornamental scenery/
in the museum/ we met – its elaborate kindle/
the dam of elegant photographs/ and the rumps
of antiquity staged
in rows/
where our cheeks cuddled clumsily as
we view : the
laughter/ and sloppy eye contacts
that raced/ through the towers of our
tender feelings/the majesty of our
cologne luring attention from
fellow spectators/ the jabs on our feet as we
dance to the romance of music/ and
the pleasant twinge of never meeting
again/ as the rays from the
sun jolts me from sleep.
