Olánréwajú Akin

Olánréwajú Akin identifies himself as a sane madman and a recovering reluctant adult. His poems investigate his mental health and the process of his gothic becoming. He writes Thoughts From The Other Side for Bit & Bits, a newsletter that’s focused on telling stories that are reducing human to sane madman without judgement. Olánréwajú Akin is the name his father never gave him

ask me how sadness tastes, and
i’ll tell you to eat my mother’s delicacy.

it is cooked in her heart and is
sweet as the lemons.

every night, we long for it in her eyes
his indifference, and the lifeless embrace.

and we hate how we cannot unmake
the nights when
the delicacy is served in our dreams.
