Founder of The Untold Narratives
“It’s not personal,” Ebonekhui starts,
standing tall and proud
in clothes your father would scoff at.
His English burns your ears.
He will not meet your eyes until the ceremonial paint is gone
So you turn, head high for all who care to see your light
And you wash.
When your tears clear the paint
all that remains on your naked face is your iwu.
And he cannot remove the marks that hug your skin
Kiss your face
You turn, smile, and greet your nieces
Tell them the story of each curve in every scar.
If their history cannot live on their face,
It must burrow its home in them somehow.
