Six poems by Nnorom Azuonye in the latest online volume of Other Voices...

'I mourn the land of light plunged into darkness
before the first gasp of my third birthday
condemning me to three decades of fugitive life -
even in the bowels of the whale
that crushed and swallowed my homeland,
entombed its banner of The Rising Sun.'


from 'Dead Sun'
