UnSeparating: Mom

“When the world is colder than cool; I’ll wrap you in my arms and bless you with the warmest embrace. When hell switches sides with the earth And the heat gets too unbearable for you, I’ll trade my warmth for icy heartlessness And take you in my arms until I am melted into perfect oblivion” I stuck my phone in front of my mom and showed her the picture I

9/9

It’s Feburary; the month of love? It feels like a sick joke to me as well, but it isn’t. It is one month since Iyanu left and everyday has seemed like an elongation of a terrible nightmare.  Today is the 14th; Valentine’s Day. My parents have not let me go back to school because I am ‘not fit’ to be around others. I don’t know where my mom is seeing

November!  First, let me just get it out of the way that today is Charles’s birthday. But that’s okay… I’m good. I didn’t call him and I wasn’t tempted to. He’ll be fine. I’ll be fine. We’ll both be fine.  This month has been a month of planning for me majorly. Materially: I have begun to buy baby stuff. Clothes, socks, bath materials, feeding utensils, baby oils and powder, even

For Those Who Won’t Go…

I have been shouting ‘Exhibition’ ‘Exhibition’ since… Well, the first day of the exhibition came today and although it’s a week long (and there are other absolutely breathtaking art works at the venue/gallery) I know some people would not still visit.  So, here are the three works I exhibited and their interpretations.  Enjoy! Obinrin-birin    The word ‘Obinrin’ is Yoruba for ‘Woman’. On the finished work in the gallery, I

Mother-hood

I like to say to people that I’m hood. In fact, when Ezra recently told me ‘Hood Morning (that’s how we greet in the hood)’, I felt quite happily gangster. But I must say – I’m not hood. Neither am I gangster. Neither am I street. I like to believe that the reason I try to associate myself with being ‘tough’ is because I never really experienced hardship. I never
