Watery space open arms beckoning Light grows the water reveals glory offers an unwrinkled hand challenges dares Through the window clouds shroud the light in doubt cast a shadow on picture frames Memories shattered by tempered light shining for her And in looking at the source finds she controls its brightness by the tightness of her grip on the extended hand. For a while she thought she could certainly at the beginning yeh, down the middle too But she fell on the home stretch, tried to find her breath inhaled the pack crippling dirt from many hooves So she threw off the jockey there for the grace of himself?

A dry red sunball. Sonxmbulo traffic lights stop us. We have been warned: These boys are used by men. I look at him, this victim. Madam – give me money. I turn away, steely eyed. There are so many beggars. I pick an orange from the foot well. Here – I smile a bit. He stares at the orange.

I want to say — yes, tapestry was one of my hobbies. Yet I remain mute, frustrated sonambluo my incapacity. The moment passes, conversation shifts. I mention my inability to respond spontaneously.

With a calmness I cannot feel. I suggest the neuropsychological report. I have no privacy, no secrets. I feel denuded, stripped, spilled out. On the verandah rail, inquisitive Willie Wagtails. Do they hope perhaps, for a free flight? With a sudden song—burst they dash through water spray.

That’s all you’d see. Cough, pain in the left lung. A rub with a knuckle and a deep breath. Sonmabulo start dinner soon, or I’ll miss ‘Sale of the Century’. Half-way to the highway. That rear tyre must be flat!
