3 Fragile

(for her new lover)


After Gbenga Adesina





With her,


you will come to learn that it is okay to be soft in love like silk,


like wet hair.


She will teach you to say the names of your old lovers into the wind without breaking into water again; how the other name for god is love and how open hearts can be prison doors.


Her tongue, an alloy of fire


and magic that burns and soothes in lost languages,


you know this because there are nights when you come back cold, splintered in hidden places in need of mending and she will breathe


into your bones and tell you in whispers that men are fragile things.


And you will


laugh the way men do but offer no rebut to her. @@
