Just over the weekend, I received the most heart breaking mail of 2021
I was contacted by Tom Ball, Senior Editor from Fleas On The Dog Online Publishing Company, Canada and he gave me the news of the century. Ah!
Okay, let’s calm down a bit.
If you know a little about me and haven’t heard the few things already out there, I write. And it so happens that two of my poems Abandoned and Blinded got published on one of the most amazing platforms ever.
I Know you’d like a peek so here you go. Melekwe Anthony on Fleas On The Dog
This was what Poetry Editor Hezekiah had to say about moi
Melekwe Anthony is more than a
malenky bit choodessny and a freely associating sprit…Nadsat. ‘He hails from Lagos, Nigeria
and believes in telling people’s stories with their own eyes.’ Keep your eyeball peeled anyway
you can: Google (in the non-pejorative) his govoreets”
Let me also add that I have never been described with so many big words before, It was really exciting (Laughs).
Anyway, for those of you who haven’t seen it yet or clicked the link above, here’s FOTD review of the twin published poems
“Thump! Thump!” “…the darkness that
probes me.” “…as stables of raindrops run their lanes…” “a man can only hide when there is
space.” Anthony is an “ever calling friend, if only you kept him longer.” It’s all too beautiful…
These poems are so dear to me. They were crafted in mid-2020 and You can’t imagine what inspired them. These are actually my 6th and 7th poems getting published since I suddenly dove into poetry.
Thank you so much FOTD, Tom Ball and Hezekiah Scretch. You guys are wonderful. I love Canada!
