A Side of Raunch

please me.
Don’t tease.
If you’re coming come in.
If you’re touching
touch there
if you’re loving me.
Love’s snare.
Don’t tease.


Abigail Arunga’s second collection of work deeper explores the correlation between words and bodies, sensualities and things left unsaid. With 3 additional poems from poets Christine Muthoga and regular collaborator Kylie Kiunguyu, A Side of Raunch seeks to reveal the side that we all know is there but rarely dare speak of, but should. Unless you’re horrible. Or dead. Enjoy.
