Saraba Magazine is pleased to flag off her individual poetry chapbook series with Daybreak & Other Poems by Dami Ajayi. This individual poetry chapbook series project is another rigorous attempt at showcasing Nigerian, and indeed, African poetry written by Nigerians and Africans residing within the country and continent.
Daybreak is a suite of fourteen poems described as “fine narratives laden with the beauty of verse.” With expansive themes ranging from dreams to memories, love to lust, longing to grief, these poems are deeply rooted in our contemporary world and exalt audacious truths that need to be addressed.
Dami Ajayi is the Co-publisher/ Fiction Editor of Saraba Magazine. A medical doctor who moonlights as a writer, his poems have been anthologized to a worldwide audience. His acclaimed debut volume of poems, Clinical Blues, which has notoriously stayed out of print, was shortlisted for the inaugural Melita Hume Prize in manuscript form. He lives in Lagos.
