Treasure Island

Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

(16 January 1968 / Umuahia, Nigeria)

A Painter's Work


The pigment of the eye
of the grazing bull threatens us
with unassailable blackness...
The blades of the tussock of a
raided field blench
from the trills of fornicating
fowls – coots exiled from
humiliated seas – exchanging
badinages rounded in fibs,
thus apprising the painter of
bagatelles of Picasso’s
colourful past.
