Qunu Poems

 
Danai Mupotsa

(University of the Witwatersrand)

1
On the rock.
We stand calmed still
for a moment of
engineered thought
And hot tears.

The thing most interesting
about happiness is that its
machinations demand the containment of violence
The face of beauty
Recalls us
Embraces us
Endears us
Warms us
And love
Contained in such extraordinary
Well perhaps just ordinary
Violence.

Creamy soft serve
delicious.
Creamy soft serve
Delicious around the mouth
And sweet
Creamy soft serve
delicious
With softened crunch that
comes in the end
Delicious.
