Her words are red
They spit fire and blood.
They are relentless, contentious and stupendous.
She and her words.
They will leave you.
Her words are your truth, our truth and all we have been through.
Through race divide, cultural and love divide.
Divide us. Disunite us,
all you want but know about it, she will write.
She will write about it all.
Fees must fall, Mbeki letter and Ghordan’s stance.
Stanzas, rhymes and lines.
Verses, vowels and in between.
Hear our cries as we weep her words.
Unpublished. Unspoken. Unapologetically loud.
