THE SOUTH AFRICAN IDIOMATIC EXPRESSION FOR LOVE

 

It is the come and go

to see you here again

for the fourth time.

It should be then and now

not how and when.

But you see it here

on the page

before you like

virgin flesh upon

which you feed to your

heart’s desires, yet

you come not for you

shall not retread

the docks, for the light

of it is pure

and not beleaguered

with opthalmic blessings

of good hope

and cheerless

running backed

laughter

of schmaltz and gruel.

For it is not the right

of all to be here

just the few who know it

for what it is.

The light of all

has come about and

you do not see it

for you are about to be

fun and gamed into

the system.
