Treasure Island

Daleen Enslinstrydom

[Daleen EnslinStrydom] (25-02-1967 / Springs, South Africa)

Scarlet woman

Caught in the act she fears them,
hears their voices
as they drag her like an animal to the slaughterhouse
while her prosecutors pulls her by the hair
to the pebbled courtyard
where she stumbles and she is naked
and she knows that she is guilty
while her heart pounds anxiously in her chest,
uneasily she grasps for air.

[Hata Bildir]
