Poem: Home For Love by Manuel Odeny

hey love
just a warm smile, an assurance you are mine
embrace me for loneliness to ease
a hot calabash of uji*' for my soul to soothe
smooch my salty lips, to remove the bitter bile
come closer sweet, for your body i desire
the rob and urge in me to release.
I will whisper what i miss dove
coz I am home.

*Uji (from Swahili, porridge)
