According to the gospel of man under apple trees
& Tchicaya U Tam’ si,
belief in God is to love Stephanie Omar with origins,
& give your heart to a serpent. Adam falls,
Sasha picks up the sageberries for me her non-living father.
What do we do with this the world, eat it?
I believe in dying,
make myself a garden or a grave,
& farm the happy hours in bowls of hollyhocks.
I believe in love, the depth of nothing.
Tares Oburumu is a graduate of philosophy from the University Of Benin. A lover of God and his daughter, Sasha.
