The first poem in a series of handwritten poetry about South Africa.

 

  1. Politics

the stuff of legendsScan0009

left us all unable

and unwilling

but heavily wanting

 

to form societies

-that enjambment

of kings and their slaves-

 

and to arm ourselves

with falling walls

that blood nectar

of complacency
