than his dream
smaller

Competing Signs

Signs behind signs between signs beside signs

Space plus minus space

No, those competing meanings value

The difference between rowdy thoughts

And kindling economics

Transition point in the syntax of video image capturing


(Images manipulated and captured by Obododimma Oha from the video presentation of Mike Ejeagha's narrative music "Onye Ori Utaba")


The griot behind his fiction
Next to & nested with the otherness he performs
So, let us collocate the icons
To speak a deviant language

Patriarch & Matriarch in dialogue
The end of sex, the beginning of humanity
One-without-otherness

housing a curious glance

the houses watch how the rambling streets tell their myths
the curious glance at running meanings
last things that hold nothing
in our crowded imagi/nations

ART sighs deep & sees
The networks of our pretexts
Becomes the Science
That removes the garments of our flesh
& shows how
Each doctor looks like a patient
