Tweeting Lagos Nigeria

Inventing a new form of poetry, Teju Cole, who visits 2/10, continues to tweet his own versions of breaking headlines from Nigerian newspapers:

"The Lagos State Secretariat in Alausa is full of filthy creatures gorging themselves. But also, it has been invaded by rats."

"Angry at Olumide, of Igando, for not becoming a pastor, the Holy Spirit cursed him with kleptomania, with a sub-specialty in cars."

"While he was fetching firewood in Bauchi, persons unknown removed from Umar’s face both his eyes. He is understandably upset"

More tweets.
