This is a tale of life, successes, pains, experiences and moments. I am not sure these poems actually exhausted my experiences, lessons, dreams, and views but I can promise you that these Twenty-Eight poems will give you a peep in my hole and where I am coming from and the future I envisage. I have been writing for as long as I remember and poems have been my safe haven in which I get to write without been judged or scared of what it means. I write to express happiness, I write to express pain, to express confusion or dreams. I write when I am short of words or full of words. Apart from writing, I enjoy reading poetry works, good books and generally, I am a great fan of art, creativity and moments captured in love.
“To try to contain a concept as large as Love within words is an ambitious endeavour—a task many poets have attempted and failed at. Yet, Orimoloye's poetry creates a universe where, in place of containment, we encounter enlargement. Love is a Plot Device abounds with freshness and the kind of originality found only on the lips of poets who invent language.” —Yinka Elujoba, Writer and Art Critic “My concerns about Moyo's tricky thematic choice for a debut are delightfully dispelled from the first poem, Letter From a Young Poet, a response to Rilke that reveals the poet's keen awareness, right into a carefully written collection of love poems that are funny, meditative, and delivered in a voice entirely his own. An enjoyable read. A poet to watch.” —Efe Paul Azino, author of For Broken Men Who Cross Often (Farafina) and founder of the Lagos International Poetry Festival “What my friend and brother—Moyosore Orimoloye has shown us in this book, from 'Letter to a young poet' to 'eight notes to an ex-lover' is what all the great bards, singers and writers have been trying to tell us all these years- the exigent role love plays in the human experience. How love positions itself to be the most important force in our individual lives, how love modulates fluently to lust and back to love, and the emptiness we seem to feel without it. This book is the culmination of everything. —Boluwatife Afolabi, author of The Cartographer of Memory and Poetry Editor, Agbowo

Abyssal Claims is an anthology of real life issues expressed through poetry. It contains mature and uncensored content ranging from sexuality to violence and depression.
