Ransom by Sibulelo Manamatela

Poem

the exorcist is a tempter
it is witchcraft what he does with his lips
and his soft tongue in the candlelight
a practiced seduction of the soul

the giant inside is a wanting
is a weakness with pouted lips
sucks on its tongue
and slides out of your skin

the exorcist is a thief
holding your soul for ransom
waiting to trade it for sanctity
on the Last Judgement
