Ms Stanley, Do You Have The Time?

Ms Stanley, do you have the time?

I was hoping you and I

could take a walk through the Anatomy Lab,

we would go past the test tubes of blood

Red,from people all over the world,

we would not stop where the viruses grow on every kind of pink tissue from every nation and land,

We wouldn’t stop at the microscopes to see the brown cells swollen with melanin on your skin,

but instead we would walk to skeleton room, the bowl of bones, and wouldn’t you be shocked to find,

All bones are white there.

About Egoyibo Okoro

Beautiful. Friendly. Opinionated. Feminist. Scholarly. Apolitical. Christian. Sometimes, I write in Engli-Igbo and/or pidgin English. Just so you know, I am naturally disgruntled about a lot of things, most especially gender inequality, human rights abuses, racism and corruption. #EndChildMarriage. #EndTerrorism. #EndPoverty. #EndRacism. #EndImperialism. The Igbo say, "egbe bere, ugo bere, nke si ibe ya ebena nku kwa ya" - Live and let live!
