Mbizo Chirasha writes


My breasts are dry of milk in the climate of this heat
My earth ejaculates platinum and uranium
Anus of my rock puffs pure gas and crude oil
The clay of my heart binds together the dust of my dreams
Forests of my mind sagging with coco beans and coconuts

I am tired of bullets and paparazzi gossip
I am a country eating peanuts and bananas
I am the flower of want, whose bloom was pruned by madness,
Whose holy nectar was imbibed by mad drunkards?
I am a night mare, poets and prophets bring back my wildness
The Hinterland
The Hinterland --  Glenn Brown
