Best Poem of Tallie Pascoe

Xhosa

Your tribe removes
the top third
of your womens little finger
when they are born

I do not believe in your spirits
In your fears of haunting

You stood in that carpark.
I would never have noticed you.
How long had you watched me?

How long had you watched me?
The girl in a black coat
smoking
by the third entrance

Your tribe removes
the top third
of your womens little finger
when they are born

You were out of your territory
Xhosa.

As I was out of mine.

I did not believe in your spirits ...

Read the full of Xhosa

Anytime

I could have left you anytime
And left a slamming door.
Instead I took all your lies
And wound up on your floor.
Anything I gave you
Didn't matter anymore.
The exposure of your smile
As a blackened, rotton core.
