[tab id=1]the home I know
is dry as
has been lit aflame
smoked and scorched
chewed up
swallowed up
sick up and spat out
measured out
found to be wanting
traced out
crossed out, cut out
pencilled [restrict]back in
and rewritten,

the home I know
is full-up
has been tipped
and measured
and watered
the place I know
[tab id=2]Carla Chait is in her Honours year of English at Wits. [/tab]
