Give a warm welcome to the birth of ELLIPSES..., standing shoulder to shoulder, along with Clementines, Sentinels, My Song, Dances on the Plains, among others. They are capable of widening fulfilling readership in our schools, colleges and tertiary institutions, where they can deepen reflective thinking, now in dire needs to cultivate good leadership, role modelling and mentorship at considerable great levels. Ellipses... sets out to fill the gaps in the collection of poems under, Dances on the Plains and also continues in Orok Otu Duke's poetry tradition - to document and topicalize some current and didactic issues in our society. Ellipses..., touches on a wide range of issues and emotions, including the ones that concern and touch you and your love ones. A good poet, like, a good playwright or novelist and critic is a great recollective and reflective thinker, a historian and a chronicler in many dimensions. Rt. Hon. Orok Duke has shown very great feat in all these, in the tradition of Coleridge, Maya Angelo, John Keats and Worthsworth of varied climes, times and cultures. A taste of the pudding, they say, is in the eating! So is the taste of edikan ikong in Duke's cultural cuisines or that of beniseed soup in Yala, my own culinary tradition: Once again, you are all invited to relish the taste of poetic culinary delights packaged in the poetic cocktails or buffets dinners in the ELLIPSES...for reading, like delightful dishes maketh a man and a woman, providing appropriate sustainable nourishments; psychologically, emotionally and psycho-socially.
