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 ...

The Circus

My world is a brooding circus of grief
That’ll summon the crowds with a skeleton wreath
Pipe chilling keening instead of a band
With a coffin in the circle for the masters stand.
Handing out blood in the ice cream cones
In place of the coconuts, peace waits to be stoned.
As the children squeal and play with the rats
And the stilt-man carries tall clouds of bats.
I’ll welcome you into the black show tent
