An intense poem by Olaitan, in Different Truths.

Are the beautiful faces 
That paint the nights, 
They are the resounding tick-tocks 
Of silent kisses
Only found in corners.

Streetlights are the four legs
Of one soul in two .

Streetlights are the weary hips 
Of glowing figures.

Streetlights are the mute walks 
Of lonely souls of ‘bached-elors’
Kissing walkways with their soles,
As they await their ‘ten virgins’.

Streetlights are the fingerprints 
Of stainful men 
On the walls of life.
