INFIDÈLE by Agbaakin Oluwatoyosi

My pen is a divided city.
She pays homage to two masters;
but the two aren’t equal.
she is a slothful slut when I pin her
down to my cozy paper.

They say Muse is a philanderer
that makes Generals go coy.
she plays whoredom to this hunch-
to write, though my hands be numb
from drilling the holes in my head
for literary crabs and singing birds
as stars frolick around a Crescent

But I swear,
these words are not my sons
ask this whore who did warm her spine
and ejaculated words into her loins
when I was away burning her papery beds.
