Allergies, poetry by Lanre Badmus at
Zac Wolff



written by: Lanre Badmus



You unconsciously turned my eyes into travelers.
After your figure, they advanced helter skelter.
Frantically, they followed you everywhere.
They were helplessly captivated by a beauty so rare.
A little jumpy, they embarked on a jolly journey.
They once did that at the sight of a huge amount of money.
Passionately, they plied the path of a pilgrimage.
Your body was nothing short of a holy image.
My eyes were on a movement of many milages.
If you were a skin, they were obvious allergies.
