Vignettes of a South African Township called Mdantsane

Haiti 2


helicopters crossed a torn
while birds escaped
on to the other side
people stretched their hand long
people peered at the hole for long
people caressed the tear for long
there were no stars
there wasn’t any sun
the birds never came back.
