Contemplation on the Odu Oyekun Obara

Spectacular forests
conceal the movement of snakes
Misty mountain tops
hide avalanches in their placid snow
Mighty  oceans
creep inland, a march revealed only by time
Be careful that the beauty of the flower
does not cause you to forget
the poison it contains
nor that the magic trick
that so amazes your mind on the street
does not cost you your wallet
Look here, but not there
is the name of a person who lives amongst us
beware of them
but more importantly
beware they are not you

-- Marcos Ifalola Sanchez --  Inspired while listening to Nils Frahm's "si"
