MAKING IT THROUGH

My father turned away from me

in the African way

to show he was about

to die with respect for the African

he had grown to respect

and admire

the men and women who

loved me like child in their arms

when I was young

and too fruitful

for pure endeavour

but amassing a dialogue

with

Kings and Queens of

the desert times.

I will not be able to make it

through unless they ask

me to

and then I come.
