Two poems by Mary

FOR AMINA LAWAL & CHILD

Amina Lawal
with a baby to nurse,
wishig not to enthral
a victim of a horrible curse.
I frist watched you
through the
Human Rights Watch window.
You and your daughter
perched in my inbox,
birds caged by words
willed to falter,
a cure for liberty detox.
I could not eat
the sandwich in my hand,
I was at anxiety’s command.
I prayed in your behalf,
“where on earth is God’s staff?
