Africa


You, with your
Violent temper
You, with your
Violent skies
I, your
Adopted daughter
Wake up and I
Stretch my legs
Through your waters
Slide my hands
Down your mountains
Arch my back
Over cities
Trying to embrace
All of you

For my friend Whitthread Wa Ga Mashiane

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
