Poet Bio

I know the one who has stolen the jackal’s tongue
His insides are bitter and sweet from the corn bread and white man’s water

I know the one, who with the tip of his tongue
has tasted the Hyena’s tears
He shall know so much laughter
his spleen will burst

The river goddess sleeps under the mystery of pregnancy
something is coming something going

The spear bleeds
The land is burning

Poet Bio

I was born in the 80, in the then Transkei town of Idutwya. I completed my Journalism studies at the Durban University of Technology and have been working as an independent documentary filmmaker and TV journalist since then.
