Affection & Other Accidents

Affection & Other Accidents

Available on Amazon

Affection & Other Accidents, Dami Ajayi’s third volume of poems, comprises poems of different forms and lengths. The end of a romantic relationship is at the heart of this collection, and the poems in it explore the poet’s inner thoughts as much as they bear witness to the five cities and three continents across which the relationship unravels. Inadvertently, politics, both local and global, including George Floyd’s murder and the Covid-19 pandemic, seeps into these lyrical poems styled like a 90s R&B LP record and punctuated with poetic interlogues.
