Stanley Niamatali's Poetry

If you are craving poetry with a bit of exotic flavor, check out Stanley Niamatali's samplying of poetry at ArLiJo.


I bring you a papaya; you call me
your sailor. The knife lays bare symmetry
of halves, once one. Succulent sienna flesh,
germinated from a hard seed of this earth,
melts with a delicacy unlike this earth.
Pulpy seeds release savory fire.
The sky is full of birds.
You put your hands over
your eyes. Jude, your hound, howls
at a spiraling leaf. The blue
shell in the fallen nest oozes
liquid time. I reach for your hand.
