Torre di Pisa

We are not in the district of Tuscany

long enough to practice leaning against the sky:

whatever invisible force holds us up,

holds all things together.

We harness inertia for relationships.

For when we are in motion;

we wish to remain in motion;

to advance, neither standing still,

nor retreating, and if we must lean

let us lean into each other

as if two can occupy the space of one

and ending we begin.

Michael D. Brown

About Ijagun Poetry Journal

Ijagun Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal that provides a platform from which we can tell our own stories in the authenticity of their multiplicity through the poetic medium. We don’t want to hear these stories from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art, too. Hence, we aim at publishing new and emerging poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to, break or reinvent conventions. Again, we accept reviews and critical essays on poetry. We also accept powerful art works and photographs that make us appreciate the "poetry" in everything.
