  • Disguise

    By Kiah on June 15, 2017
    She has periods of quietness. They are long and unsettling. Unsettling because Sayo was never a quiet child. Of all our children, she was the noisiest. The one most like her mother, Ranti. The one I loved the most. I know parents aren’t allowed to have favorites. I know it is wrong and unfair to my three other children that […]

  • The Hairy Truth

    By Kiah on June 2, 2017
      Like everything else about her, Kiitan’s hair was difficult. All her life, only one hair dresser had not complained. Aunty Toyin, from Jakande Beach Estate. Only that sweet rotund woman had spoken lovingly, maybe sometimes in awe, about her thick, long and very unmanageable hair. Everyone else had complained; her mother, her aunties, even her friends who should know better. […]

  • Becoming Lovers

    By Kiah on April 13, 2017
      The first time we kissed was unexpected; it was two people on a collision course that didn’t know how it would all end up. Worse still, it was in full view of others. By the second time, we were better prepared. I knew how his mouth tasted then, knew the crevices and the strength of his tongue. He wielded […]

    The train ride into the city is an hour long and sometimes delayed because the Metro North, more than 50 years after its inception, still hasn’t quite yet figured out how to handle train tracks with snow. Ope has brought his DSLR along for the ride. The woman he is in love with loves getting her picture taken like no […]

  • Why

    By Kiah on November 6, 2016
      I have been away too long. Blame my ‘Ajala’ ways. I am in love with Asia and can’t wait to go back. It was a trip that exceeded my every expectation. Someday I will write about it. Not today. Today I am writing about Third Mainland Bridge, Oworonshoki, Ghana High, Falomo etc. Because I am starting to forget Lagos […]

  • The Call of the Wild

    By Kiah on September 13, 2016
    Last year , a missionary came to my church in Toronto. He talked about the mission to the First Nations. The stories he told left my heart broken. The conditions he was describing seemed impossible in Canada yet it exists, in Canada and in the US. Yesterday, for some weird reason, I started praying for these people. So lost, so beautiful, so […]
