Nature’s call

Poetry by Gamey Ayim

The emergency roll call is a call from nature

Recipients run like a hare to attend to the call

Bowels filled to the brim gather at her feet to offload

Loads in the bowels are brought to her bosom in order not to explode

They squat to dial, squeeze to call and sweat to clear and clean

Freedom smiles at the recipients when they hung up

On and off calls of nature is a necessary evil

Only understood by the natural telephony maker

About Tampered Press

Tampered press started out as a conversation on creating more platform and visibility for writers and visual artists in Ghana and Africa. While blackness has become more noticeable now than in the past, and more space is gradually being created at the table 

black as an identity is heavily nuanced and has to be dissected and carefully documented. African artists in particular have fewer platforms. Our experiences, mannerisms and culture often have similarities, but our style, design, creation and content are different.
