Beneath our Panties

Reading : 1 minute

In this poignant verse Nigerian poet, Olaitan, defines a woman, sensitive and vibrant, beyond her anatomy.

Beneath our are
The hot coals
Of knocks and punches
Of holes and broken punchlines.

Beneath our panties are
The echoes
Of oceanic tears;
The ones that flow
From the heart
To the eyes.

Beneath our panties are
The swollen smiles
Of the salty sourness
Of our , souls and .

Beneath our panties are
The autographs of scars…
Beneath our panties are
The footprints of life’s birches…
