tomorrow

Angifi Dladla

tomorrow, i'll rubbish someone's airspace.
no one will intercept me, tomorrow
i'll get out, out to the ... worlds
of true gods. there
i'll tell about hunger
in africa, asia, europe, america
and all the islands while someone dumps
tons and tons of fresh food into the vomiting ocean.
i'll tell about the total ban of relevant medication
and technologies to the slums, shacks and the hovels.
i'll tell about people owning more than one palace
while small men live or die in the parks, pavements and holes.
i'll tell about effrontery to the aged
while their epic harvests are in the palaces and granaries.
i'll tell about the jolly fat fellows who barter
our crosses for their show once every four or five years.
i'll tell about war on butchery
while flesh steams on tables.
i'll tell about the real funder
of fires and saws on forests.
i'll tell about the real funder
of lies, germs and genocides.
i'll tell about the real funder
of buriers of souls of great teachers.
"oh gods!" i'll cry, "disarm the son of man
before his fear explodes; remind him
of who he really is." tomorrow
i'll fly out of my ... body.
