Dime Maziba







We shall recall

your prophetic revolution

whose eyes stare at

the wet slipping lips of love


We shall not dance to

to the poisoned symphony

of gunshots – these tools of the oppressors

that have taken away our hope for freedom


Listen to me Thomas,

Every 15th October

poets will drip bleached blood

of ink on soaring

wings of blank pages

to vaporize the kissing gaze of revolution
