Onalethuso Petruss Ntema

(27/02/1985 / Maun, Botswana)

the complex of the simplest


the contrast between the similar
the similar of the inter-relativity
the extremity of nearness
the nearness of the never
the existence of death
the meaning of the other
on another
the changes of the constant
the plurals of the singular
the contents of nothingness
the nothing of many
the many of the few
the desire of dispossession
the dispossession of desires
the straight between the curved
the elitism of the proletariat
the power of the toothless
the toothless of the younger
the younger within the longer
the day of the night nurse
the darkness of wishes
the sadness of the joyous
the joy of the fearless
the fear of the tearless
the mere of the composite

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
