… poets are ghost writers, blank pages. Who then is the author? 

The collection starts with a scribe yielding to a long introspective verse on philosophy, metaphysics and everyday concerns by everyday people.

The collection is then divided into little chapbooks, ten in number; organized as a biographical train of thought. It covers conflicts of existence and generational relationships, rural life mores and peri urban struggles. Through omniscient, male, female, old, young, human, flora and fauna personae, the collection critiques our acceptance of African social and political life. How much of the problem or solution is an extension of ourselves?  

…the end is a whiteboard, a canvas itching to be filled. Who then takes the reins?"
