“All the photos on your hard drive, anyone you’ve ever touched, with a hand or a word, your feelings, the sky and the ocean, you are the * that binds them all together.”
I’ve never heard of it
But it’s got the strange sound new words have
Like Osama Bin Laden
And you learn the way it sounds
So you can say it often
Because you know you’ll need to
When everyone gets together
To solve the country’s problems
From the comfort of our MacBooks
From my forthcoming collection of poems about growing up and living in South Africa.
I know you have problems son
But today I’m staring straight ahead
I’ve been practicing my whole life
And soon I’ll be able to see forever
Don’t wash my windscreen
Don’t try and tell me a joke
Don’t juggle balls
I’m perfecting staring straight ahead
One day, I’ll be able to see the other side of you
Amongst other things, I’m working on a book of poetry about growing up in South Africa. This is one of the new poems.
