of mummy and daddy…
just after it rained/ my mother left for market/ leaving me with a neighbor/ doris’s mother/ doris/ a beauty i admire/ but wouldn’t touch/ because my pastor said/ touching a girl’s body is like touching hell/ doris’s mother went to the bedroom/ mothers need nap too/ doris requested we stage mummy and daddy in the palour/ on the floor/ i obliged/ handshake turned to handling/ we caught each other stealing into each other/ lust in the air/ we were both just 10/ so it took us less than 10 minutes to arrest each other in kisses/ we taste like our desires/ we burnt off our clothes/ she asked me to suck her lime/ i sucked like an hungry infant/ she directed my head down to her thighs/ she said she’s seen it happen in movies/ movies can be unrealistic sometimes/ she wanted to see if it can actually happen in real life/ she wanted me to eat from her apple/ the one god has instructed me not to eat from/ i tasted it anyway/ once/ and i found myself going for more/ we became adults in small bodys/ learning how to make love before spelling love/ we wanted to advance to the sofa so as to enter each other/ but a knock on the door killed the moment/ and almost killed us
