Francis Annagu- A Poem
The broad-back woman
At the well stood azure
Like green leaves opening
Out their pores to absorb
Sun. She has a pelvic pain
Within her abdomen of womanhood,
A childless foetus like bucket-
Full of dreams quixoting
In her terrainous road.
She unwillingly tied a strand
Around her neck pulling
Up rusted-wheels of black water
From the ball-round well
To wet a vegetation dry,
Planted behind her lost memories.
