Edginess – Jacob Kobina Ayiah Mensah

The cloudstreet hums,
walls vibrate, tears drop from the metallic hardness of the distance between
us, with an alarming speed,

rooms filled with sea currents,
we are filled with sickly smile.

Every parts of life floating across everything capture beyond
unpredictable lurch,
everything cross the rough strip

and everything remains a trait of certain vibrations and insinuations, the
house falls into a special version of afterimage, we are
lost in its weight.

Shadows follow
the shape of things to come,

and your time has past thirty years,
we lie awake,

forthcoming changes,

everything through
the blur of the water, everything remains imported confession,

sea waves come in your way,
a ray of moonlight

without shedding itself is all the feeling of guilty,
everything is looking like a urine sample.
