Dictator - Poem by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Dining and wining in chalice and
unfathomable china,
her throat swallows gold –
Lady Midas – who sat on domes
and saw ages in faceless waters,
reaping soils of exhaustion
and breaking sacrifices, chewing egg shells
and lightning the night...

Look, there’s a yolk in her throat!
