Written during a visit to India in March 2013.

in johannesburg, the teeming soweto

in chennai, the bustling, brimming market

a throbbing daytime street


in india the ganges, in south africa

a river of thirst

all the way

down its spine


down south, the seasons stir

and thunder crashes

india’s seasons surge

down south, a world shaped by southern moods

by mines, by farming

by barbed memories of land wars


the gods of south and north, vishnu

shiva & brahma

in colour everywhere

in the continent, once blessed by selassie

white bones

summon the ancestors

who watch over all


lands traverse

re verse
