Eulogy for Omalenze

Omalenze.
An intoxicant. A drug I am self destructing on.

Omalenze.
You must have been brewed by a liberal God; He did not skimp on your components. One shot of you and I am reeling over.

Omalenze, I mutter your name in rapturous nights and in daylight thoughts of you make me shudder.

You.
You who have afflicted me with cupidity.
Omalenze,
Hands that strum me like stringed instruments till I cry for joy.
Mouth so fluid and generous with love that the sun rises on your smile.
You.
Look at those teeth. God took a day off  to chisel them to perfection.

Legs sturdy and beautiful. Legs that run miles for me.


Omalenze.
Tonight
I listen to Coldplays “Skyfull of stars”.
and I think of you .
