Music tenses is an experimental series where we make creative poetry or prose from titles of some of the new music released in the past week from a lineup of Black artistes. Experience it. Read the poetry and listen to the songs that inspire it.
I wanted to feel Euphoria again,
so I took the road to Gbagada Express.
I asked Kwaku the Traveller.
The man seated next to him
claims he is the Son of Jacob,
I sit Outside, reminiscing.
The weather smells of summer;
It’s almost dry like
the harmattan back home.
I looked up to the sun
and told her to Hold that Heat.
In case I wasn’t going to come through,
I told her, Please do not lean.
In case the method I promised fails,
I told her, please design a Plan B.
