Prolific Chidora walks onto the literary Podium with a new Beverage of Poetic Prowess.


CHIDORA is a revolutionary poet and a modernist voice re-inventing the art of poesy. The literary maestro walks to the Zimbabwean artistic podium and the global literary stardom carrying in his pen hardened palms, a new beverage of poetic prowess, a literary jug of dexterity frothing with centuries of fermented hard truth, concocted with political paradox and laced with tragic humor of our moral decadence.  Morsels of satire are hard to swallow and the metaphor is bitter and scalds greed throats of recycled revolutionary rejects. The irony jabs hardly on propaganda hardened rib boxes of ideological imbeciles pruning the country naked in broad daylight. The imagery smacks the famished apparitions of city dwellers and drought scorched peasants sipping  left overs of the freedom soup. CHIDORA concocts theory and practice  as he wields  his smoking weapon, the pen  into literary stardom. A widely published poet, Acclaimed Writer and Distinguished Scholar. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC is greatly excited to feature prowess and profile excellence in form of Iconic Zimbabwean Voice TANAKA CHIDORA.

James Coburn’s Poetry Dish  tastes of   African Politics of  RESISTANCE.


JAMES COBURN ’s free style verses are pregnant with reason , emotion and mesmerizing rhythm . Coburn is a day by day  poet serializing human experiences and earthly happenings with a willing pen. His diction is creatively economized, while the expression is satirically delicious, meaning is creamed   with metaphoric opulence and reason is dipped  in  paradox. The Imagery is beautiful and proudly portrays signals and symbols with that astonishing poetic exuberance. The delivery is  organic, original like a fertile womb yet to be born. EXLUSIVE! The poet in Coburn is a griot of his land and a singer for his people. Ironically Coburn’s poetry dishes taste African politics and protests for justice. Some ingredients of reason, experience and emotion are borrowed from African Poets of resistance. We live under one universe despite demographical and geographical parameters. I always say, James Coburn is an Africa Griot in Oklahoma. Happy Great Year of 2020. ALUTA CONTINUA!!!
