Crack Me a Riddle

By Alinafe Duma

This
that drudges. Young and naive
with an emblem
of peace.
Smile
Hills
Cuddled, and living.
Lips
Spatter,
osculate.
Silent whispers
those that soothe
in a fiery afterlife
to smells of lynching.
This
which is as the sun setting behind plantations,
drugs my soul with the beauty of the night,
as I glance at an arrow strike through the bright little stars
to find you
so I can giggle.
