Between Her Legs, Babe I’m horny! And more poems in Eliseus’ new book


Young Burundian poet based in Kenya, Eliseus Bamporineza has birthed a second poetry book whose poems deliver a message of comfort, hope, courage, and determination to those who love each other amid tribulations of this world or are rejected by their communities because their way of love challenges the status quo. In a country kissing or cuddling your lover in a public makes people raise their brows because it is seen as a public offense, his writings voice a call for awareness and a revolt to do away with societal standards that enslave us and prevent us from freely expressing our feelings and emotions.

While sexual act has been seen as benefitting only men, this book gives voice to both partners. It tells us that a fulfilling intercourse is not just about mere moaning. A woman can also express the pleasure she feels from arousal to the act and suggests styles that make her enjoy it better. While his Burundian society considers openly talking about sex as taboo, Eliseus doesn’t shy away from exploring sensuality, sexual attraction, and intimate relationship in most of his poems. He therefore invites other young people to take ownership their sexuality and speak out about their romantic drives and feelings.
