Mr Slam

I wish I wrote that poem first
The one you described how a voiceless woman spoke in body language

Walking in verses and styles of her footsteps 
Crossing trees growing love offerings in heels passing high hills

The poem you wrote about her politics and votes 
With no ballot papers on poles selling her goals
Real goals

I wish my fingers cooked syllables before you burned my syllabus
With images of the sun dancing to bass guitars so her dreams can peek on tomorrow's rest in peace chorals
 
I wish your famous Stars never described 
The specs of her smiles like falling stars 
Catching your wish-list attention 

You beatt my thoughts before 
I speak how she designed her beauty 
through bedroom eyes

Eyes that saw stars falling from poetry's gallery 
You were too quick for my thinking Mr. Slam

Horizons defining how the sky cried in thunders after scandals 
How the sky donated time and space for your fast paced baby slams 
Her wounds never offered resistance though painted before eyes and ears 
Round tongues described the flat tones planning to hijack deep kisses of her lips 

How I wish I wrote that poem

Those pictures of her voice you recycled in metaphors 
Hiking her 
away from cemetery names that smells to live sadly ever after tales

Slam 
Sorry Mr.

Let me be your mic
Let me listen to your creativity as you design your desires
I mean it Slam
Let me be your microphone

I promise to echo your words in tuberculosis infecting any living soul till my diamond skeleton dies

Sickening all wannabes 
Infecting all sick ideas you nursed before my brains/
Privately lusting over her virginity for stage

That idea was mine Slam

It hurts to watch you bleed cravings
It hurts to watch me watch you over the mirror battling to shape your poetry facial expressions 

We are stark together please let me be your microphone

    How wonderful to hear you Mandla; I cannot wait until Tshego and those close to you hear! You came with pride; educating and enlightening those who would listen, as Mandla does. Never forget where your heart came from Mandla Ngomane. Others let their pride grow, you continue letting your heart grow ;)

    Raymond, this is a super-fresh poem, a different angle; take on things -- re-inventing it with grace woven into the strong tone.
