A Township Like Alex

 

How is Alexandra

Township I ask

The laundry maid

 

Her brow furrows

 

Dormitory town

Taxi wars

Tiny digs

 Lonely at night

Small children

Sugar daddies

Thugs outside

Guns blazing

 

We talk about her

Tribal homelands

Near Pietersburg

She smiles again

 

One day

When retired

She will return

To her ancestors

 

Old then

And still

Hard up

But free from

Murderous

Violence

And foot‑falls

After darkness

 

◄ Feeding the Birds.

Passing Clouds. ►
