“ODE TO MAMMARY GLANDS” BY GIFT AMUKOYO – FINALIST, TONY TOKUNBO FERNANDEZ POETRY COMPETITION 2018

ODE TO MAMMARY GLANDS

My breasts are tender

Yet they tender

From cradle to king sized

Of call to babies

Mildly they suckle

Possessively they kindle

And all I do is bear tenderly

Caressing your cheeks

As I surrender my bosom

Tendering all my life

On plains where blooms flourishes

Rendering tenderly they flapped with pride

I wear my nudity with decency

My busts no longer hold this world in firm delight

My nectar shrivel to earth with fulfilment

And nature flagged it down with grace

For I bloomed for its savour

I wane from its pleasure
