The Cathedral

by Shola Balogun


Opulent landmark
shifted from hunch-backed
savannah

Pods of mud walls
stooping beneath
the sun-baked
roofs

Hearts thumping
to the embrace
of raw dusts

Caressing
in conjugal bliss
the lusty epics
of undying
hymns

O holy sanctuary!
Your lofty enormous
walls
lure the eyes
into hidden
dreams
