Nwankwo Prosper O – thanatology


to burials and funereals\—i turn up\—a  palpable psychopomp\— skinbound in ghost-outfits\ —deathbound\—in a language escorting expired shadows\— of flesh & blood in my breath\ in silence\ i become  a gravedancer or thanatologist\— speaking the grave accent\ cohering the living \—with prayer bumps frequented by ghosts\ i palpate thanatographies  as my death-assemblage



Nwankwo Prosper O is a happy-ish Nigerian writer, poet & painter.

His MelSang personality dictates his hobbies through a plethora of things he loves unknowing in the music of silence. Prosper can be reached via: shielddwillz1@gmail.com.
