Wild Laughter by Tayo Michael Osonuga

Wild laughter

This is how
to exterminate
the slithering
reptile
of
anxieties
roaming
the precipice
of folded brows
and the orb
of heaves,
limping
across the
park of
cantankerous
creaks and
the stilts
of breaths
tinkering
on the wild
of ire
and interspersing
canons of lights
passing against
the robes of efforts
and a flotsam after a
terrible crack in time
reloading bliss from the
wild of laughter
