SILHOUETTE PREY

a poem by peninnah ng'ang'a, Kenya

In the inky mass of moonless sky
angry spirits roam courting my breath
they swirl
applaud and dance behind my closed door
Ugly
Formless
Cold confused creatures
cursed zombies cast off earth heaven and hell
Thirsty they long for the flow in my veins
quest is on for my fresh flesh
Scared and lost in circle and prayer i behold my soul
heated
louder
vigorous they get at the scent of my ignited righteousness
In coals and fire a sacrifice they intend to make of my undefiled body
light to alter doom and their state
key to unshackle the limbo
A mark
Proclamation
Baptism for their liberation.

I am a consecrated medium
haunted by shadows and shades of darkness.
