The real deal, or: The rizzle dizzle

Poetry Partners #117

‘The Real Me’, a poem by Hadizat Motherconfessor

I munch burgers of creativity,
I don't care.
I give credit,
I don't hate.
I fiddle with the nipples of life,
I don't stick.
I pay serving waitress,
I don't free.
I sail ocean distress.
I am bullet;
I harm!
I don't kill.

An ‘atom poem’ by ben Alexander of โ€˜The Skepticโ€™s Kaddishโ€™

u ache
to touch
us all

u tell

u vent

u mold
bold new

u have

u earn
no end of

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

  1. I’m searching for the poet Hadizat.
    And I can’t find the exact page of the Poet’s poem about the Motherconfessor.
    I’m so interested to know if the Poet is female?

          1. I actually wanted the link to the exact page for the first poem of Hadizat you posted. I just couldn’t go through all the material to find the poem. I was interested in reading the comments to the concept or history of the motherconfessor.
            The second link you posted hadizat reference Olorunyomi Joyce as the poet.

          2. I don’t think she posted this particular poem on her blog – not all poems that get submitted to me are from people’s blogs… some are written just for my blog.
