NANCY NDEKE smokes poetry weed every dawn. She puffs out fogs of metaphor and fumes of African imagery curl like tendrils into the oil soaked wind of Nairobi. The city of Nairobi rubs off sleep from its eyes and then slide into another drunkenness. POETRY.Ndeke is a religious imbiber of black African bean made drink. The black coffee refreshment stirs up her stream of consciousness and oils her mental conveyor belt. The flesh of her verse is greased with smuffs of sweet honey and coated by a sumu of hot chilies .You know what I mean, PARADOX. The African Poet Lioness gluttonously chews the flesh of Oxford English syntax and shreds Cambridge grammar into mouth tasting delicious African metaphors in English . She is a literary trendsetter, Africanizing poetry and protecting us like her brood from the head knocking and tongue blocking Canterbury Tales. She is a literary revolutionary rebel breaking the traditional convectional page poetry chains of Shakespeare and his peers. Nancy Ndeke rises early before dew washes the earth of Africa as her pen’s saliva bathes crevices and meadows with African scented English verse .Her psalmic expressions are tongs of red coal that burn blood sucking like anopheles dictators and autocratic zealots sipping our sweat as wash down on high tables every breakfast
