Gboyega Odubanjo’s is a voice that draws you in, intrinsically contemporary, grounded in something timeless. With an enviable lightness of touch, he explores themes such as race, mortality and the fallibility of faith—‘i believing foolish in the heat of it / assumed sweat was communion / fever god given’. The poems in While I Yet Live beat to a luxurious musicality; prayers and confessions, these are poems to read to yourself aloud.
