30, a collection of poems by Jaachi Anyatonwu banner
mma nwanyi

mma nwanyi is not in her apparel,
in her voluptuousness,
or the way she makes her hair,
it’s in imagery of her poems

mma nwanyi is not in the winks of her eyes,
or in the wiggles of her hips,mma nwanyi is found in the chambers of her heart
therein resides subliminal bliss

mma nwanyi is not in her artificial lashes
or the symphony of her accent
of the ingenuity of her Instagram filters:
it is found in patience of her caring,
in the sacrifice of her giving,
in the passion of her loving
in the dept of her writing


Glossary:
mma nwanyi (Igbo): ‘the beauty of a woman’
