Best Poem of Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu


Endloser Regen
Nach der Sintflut kommt die ausgehungerte Ebbe
zieht das Wasser zurück
lässt die Böden flüchten
auf unbeholfenen rutschigen Füssen.

Vom Donner getroffen,
von gezackten Blitzen geküsst,
weit ausholend geworfen,
hängen ausgezehrte Fischernetze der Großväter
von den Bambusmasten.

die Tod in sich tragen,
wenn grausames Gelächter
vom Rande des Dorfes
zu uns herüberfliegt.
