when Christmas always
meant some snow.

An old man
A Grumpy bitter old man
Bitter face
Red nose
Wrinkled beady eyes
Scruffy clothes his best attire

Life has not been kind
So his bitter words bite those around

These sentences 
Written as they are
In ephemeral ink
Indelible lines
Inscribed in my being 

Spectral yearnings

To rocks
In unanswerable waves
Swimming tidal
To the...

That was the summer...
Of watermelon fields, and hot, humid days

Yet I can't sleep,
My soul feels weighted,

Oh Africa, my Africa
You have the birthmark of civilisation
But shaped like a question mark of nations
Asking us why we flee
When we claim to be free

Mother shares all, sacrificing 'til barren.

She and I are one, united in breath and dust,
the atoms and spirits spinning, fragments of failures,

Judgmental eyes stare in vain
A victim of...
