On Tiptoe | a poem by Ndifreke George

Where is my heart?
My chest beats echo
in its cavity of void
Give me Monday to Friday
for I no longer love weekends
The cloud’s pee on my shade
obtrudes on my peaceful idleness
I’m lost on a familiar street
and my pregnancy pings with pain
My foetus wants to be delivered
