‘Flirtation’: February Creative Showcase

Fatima Bobboyi

This months Creative Showcase toys with the idea of ‘Flirtation’ and even though the pieces below may not fit the usual notion of ‘Flirtation’, especially in February, I think their simplicity and depth makes it gripping and alluring enough to fall under this category. Fatima Bobboyi shares her work.


I cannot love you 

Not in the way you deserve to be 

But I can say this for sure

I see you in every sunset 

I hear you in every birdsong

Your name sits like a prayer upon my lips 

And every breath I hold 

Every beat my heart misses  

Every tear I wipe 

Is a tale of longing that  screams only your name
