Press Release

Chicken wey run way from borno go Ibadan go still end up inside pot of soup
I am not interested in disclosure i am interested in discharge
   To replicate but not survive

// u have to trap it first// reimagine the boundaries //

Swinging with whatever we can get our hands on Motherfuckers better duck
-The body - does - not affect - or modulate -
I want to lay down in the place i am from
      The auto sacrifice begins _ the night becomes the mouth
If u r silent for long enough u can hear my body fill with colours
In a language you will never understand

-Precious Okoyomon
