Ellah Wakatama Allfrey remembers Binyavanga Wainaina.
‘I’ve seen it hang in muslin / like a freshly popped-out eye.’
‘Running through the ages from this casual rabbit.’
‘Consider the dramatic events that become ordinary people like us.’
‘fibrous little trauma fruit, wan little wound-licker’
‘The me that was then / follows, watching from the dark / theatre of my skull.’
