Poetry by Fui Can Tamakloe
I was asked why there are more men in the bar
than in the church.
both are refuges for men who have come
to hide from trouble.
one opens once a week,
the other opens every day.
and most people have problems,
that never go on break
December is when the city goes mad(Accepted)
The traffic is mad in town today.
Everyone’s going somewhere,
Even if their lives are going nowhere.
Especially if their lives are going nowhere.
We’re in a hurry to go nowhere.
Aside writing short stories and poetry, Fui Can-Tamakloe enjoys a
number of things which include teaching Literature part time, running
his mouth on Twitter, and a cold beer at questionable times of the day.
