This is self-explanatory there is nothing veiled
No buried undertone no metaphoric connotation
You will not need to open your eyes for exploration
This has been seen by the blind

This is as naked as the men cleansing in Lilongwe River
This is not said under breath
It is as loud as a the 4:30 muezzin from the road side Mosque
Going to where the bus stops

This is as persistent as the preacher at CBD
This has been between the sheets, this is the shit
This has the ascetic norms and tones
This is a poem and I cote “this is a poem”

This is a loud poem
As loud as my cosmetic friend in the back aisle
This should be said; to my loud friend
In the back aisle
This should be said without fail without regret
This ought to be said to stop this rude interjection
Shut up!
S h u t u p!
Genie in the bottle
