Poetry from Christina Chin/Uchechukwu Onyedikam



swamp 

sounds at dusk

the moon and sea

in my palm —

they meet







campus laundromat 

back and forth 

graduates move

in and out


… life's cycle







gratitude —

practicing the art of war

morn after morn

i wake 


to fake news







world atlas

a jigsaw puzzle 

global event —

my country and I


not in attendance





clear 

thinking

in the quiet storm

a calmness sits


rooting







vertically challenged —

the curve goes round

and round

the flying trapeze 


somersaults





supper —

at the table

the long-lost aroma

of his late mother's 

food








we say:

it is faith

through the sea of reeds

grebes dance


on water







sober

morning 

breathing a new day

under the oak tree

i coexist






different time zone

celebrating 

the feast of a saint 

bowing low to the sun


to kiss her foot
