Tee Adeyemo| A Poem | Tuesday Pin


You have set me on fire

On a wet Tuesday morning

By calling me your thing

I set myself on fire

By thinking I am your pin


So I don't want to fight

This is not a duel

I may want to undress

Run a mile

I may want a glass of wine

Or laugh into 

The Divide


I am going to win

This battle of words

But your words are lit

They have set fire 

To this place

Where all that

Seems true 

Are legs uncrossing

And lips moving


Poetry has come alive

This  wet Tuesday morning

Through words

Beyond the distance

You called me your 

Tuesday Pin

Images flash

Poems are written

Thus begins the duel.
