In every human life, the encounter of disorderliness, chaos, death, memories, and grief is unavoidable. Wale’s chapbook draws a reader’s attention to many sophisticated questions, questions of why, how and to what degree the human animal is a product of several circumstances. In his melancholic but intriguing poetry chapbook, Wale was able to identify several ills that can drown man himself. The ills of death, dark memories, police brutality, victimization, and his unspecified identity as a black child. And this is great work for those who’re questioning and keen to understand the reality of being a Nigerian.
