Vignettes of a South African Township called Mdantsane

Where is Mdantsane


where does mdantsane starts
where does mdantsane ends
i do not know
ask its people
its many streets
its sky
and its birds
they all end up in a close alley
in closed rivers
of closed dreams
sometimes a light flickers
only for a moment
when children laugh
at nothingness
its echo looks for
another mdantsane.
