A poem by Dipo Baruwa-Etti

My Beige Scarf 

My beige scarf has become an Etti.
It shapeshifts through the autumn, winter, and spring,
contorts sans any mourning aches
and morphs into a pavise
then looks beyond the dust-clad window
only to observe the zealot
climbing up the stairs with nakedness.

My beige scarf quakes.

Dipo Baruwa-Etti is a London-based playwright and poet, whose work has been showcased at venues including Arcola Theatre, Southwark Playhouse, and Old Vic Workrooms.
