ASOKORO THIS NIGHT

Mist-laden shroud, bone-dry, warm, lucent

Keel over, spring a forward roll in her crust

That quick over us sprawls, all 

Of a lift, this fresh burst of lights, 

Scattered stars swishing surly

With candescence, flush incessant.

It is parade fit for a bride-

Who, oh, regard! flaunts over there  wide

Canopied, this buzzing beau monde, over

With ashen clouds reeling out of theme

Atop this rocky city hidden in the leaves.

Effervescent, freckling of the blue bloods

Dots her hide in a mesh of mottled light

Buried within the night-green of trees

And the bellies of tuber thieves,

But will morning soon come nascent

Clad in the charm of your flowers

Or will you promenade sluggishly away from

The fibres of your palaces? Which will it be?
