Enlarge poem

Stop. Listen. Be still. Observe. Witness. Appreciate. This is the vibe and tone of this poem by a young yet commanding voice from the new generation of Black British poets. Kayo perceptively weaves the magic of ordinary, everyday occurrences into a vivid and poignant commentary on life and the business of being human. His way with words has a richness and maturity that no doubt reflects a writing talent to be reckoned with! He is bound to be successful no matter which genre he chooses for the telling.
