Mdantsane to Transkei
we drove on roads beyond roads
the sun and the sky set themselves apart
and people there talked about new south africa.
i wanted to get braids done on the
and dance to hip-hop
being played by a blind musician
his head moving
his eyes behind dark glasses
nothing has really changed
only the dog among hitchhikers
just wanted to cross the street.
