Welcome to Lagos by Chibundu Onuzo

]

Chibundu Onuzo is the author of The Spider King's Daughter. Her second novel "Welcome to Lagos" published by UK's Faber and Faber is out in January 2017. And we all can't wait to see. The book cover design is hot already. The images were culled from her instagram page where she announced the advent of this new achievement.

Cold Splinter by Okuwoga Eyimofe

There I stood, an unmoving being  A mere shard of memory 
The evidence of a wagered heart 
Drowned in in babble, constant murmurs  But perhaps, I remember 
Before congealed became my heart 
When love was an undulating paradise
And we were the cast of erotica  I recall the tenderness; the fondle 
Upon this savage path I stand 
In pathetic reminisce, the brain faints 
Upon the thoughts mirth ensued  But here I still am, broken 
Dancing to the beats of my heart; despair 
I have made frequent domiciles 
In this bottlo where I lie. I become 
The piss artist painting tomorrow's picture.
