Pigments--By Ajise Vincent--Nigeria


On that day,
I will limn a poem
On the canvas of your heart
With pigments of metaphors
And fine contemporary similes

This poem will be svelte:
Graced with hues of rhythm
Flowing from the acme of my soul.

It will be incandescent,
Ah! so virtuoso to be slagged
By any art connoisseur.

On that day,
I will call you Mona Lisa
And you will call me da Vinci.
