elobi
/ the chant is born of a swallowed scream
of speech diluted
in beads of tears
dried by masculine modesty
true speech
retreated to the borders
of withdrawal

elobi is the specifically cameroonian way of referring to the wet, swampy areas that surround riverbanks. elobi is where the slums are, and where the poor neighborhoods of yaounde are found.

elobi is also the name of patrice nganang’s book-length poem, the place where its singular narrator was born and formed, the waterlogged and violent place where this poem lives.
