Lagosynthesis: Lagos as a verb and way of life.

Collar Workers,

Blue & White alike

Look forward to

Several sips of sunset

& a cup of free road.


Fragile. It often falls and


Into go-slow.


When you see women and men

Molt like Tears of Wine

& forget tiredness to fight

For standing space in red buses

& the skeletal

Signature white buses


When you see genders morph

& can’t distinguish between the barrister

& the hawker

The conductor and the conducted,

You would need no one to tell you

Lagos is beyond an intoxicant;

It is on a recurring quest of

who is more Lagos than the other?
