A Journey From Cape Town To The Cape Flats - Poem by Lee John Siebritz
On the way to Blouberg
I visit a friend in Camps Bay.
Riding around the Cape Peninsula Area
We have a bird’s eye view of the Cape Point Nature Reserve
I buy some movies in Century City and get stuck in Clifton.
On the route to Constantia
I Smell Fish Hoek
Around the Noordhoek
Near Hout Bay outside Kalk Bay
I rush past Khayelitsha
To the nearest Kirstenbosch,
I visit a friend in Stellenbosch and take a trip back to Ronderbosch
I find a Kommetjie near the Llandudno
I discover the beauty of Muizenberg
I remind myself of a meeting on Robben Island
But first I must get out of Sea Point
I travel via train to Simons Town and admire the slopes on Table Mountain
I meet Victoria Alfred in Waterfront
I hear a taxi guard shouting Gatesville, Athlone, Mowbray, Kaap!
I meet old pals in Lavistown near Elsies River
I visit some technical students in Belhar on the way to Unibel
I move out of Sarepta
And discover the vastness of Bellville
I take two taxis back to Parow
I find myself in Bonteheuwel!
