Keepers by Pelonomi Itumeleng

Pelonomi Itumeleng | Sep 22nd, 2019 | poetry | No Comments


I am a keeper
of a body
that does not belong to me.
now and again, they take,
their belongings, from me and my sister.
We are just keeping the gates closed
for when fate shows up to
Force the gates open.
we guard bodies that never belonged to us.
