All Things Sacred

Goodenough Mashego

The soccerboots. The condoms. The shaving cream.
The aftershave. The razor blade. The master bedroom.
The first wet dream. The two pillows. The tie.
The lapel badge. The three-piece suit. The size 11 shoe.
The cigarette pack. The beer cans. The hug. The kiss.
The facial expressions. The VW Beetle. The Saturday gardening.
The soccer practice. The 21 questions. The answers.
The video camera. The colour television. The breakfast.
The picnic. The speeding tickets. The soccer rivalry.
The family dinner. The pistol. The security alarm.
The paved driveway. The school homework. The rainy night.
The pregnancy. The argument. The transistor radio.
The Hadley Chase novel. The denim jeans.
The pimples. The press-ups. The man-to-man.
The fishing rods. The driver's license. The Bible.
The Rosary. The fashion catalogue. The coffee shop.
The hip hop CD. The pornography magazine. The name.
The ashtray. The lazyboy sofa. The gunlighter.
The blue movie in the VCR. The baritone.
The collection of Bob Marley records. The man.
The husband. The father. The quitter. The lover. The God
