In Memory Of S. C Mthethwa 1985-2021

By Makhosonke | Kasi Poet | 12 Mar 2022

He disappeared when autumn sang the last hymn.  

Trees cogitate in silent  and poetry shall not express grief ;we shared a  shade while we dismantle our problems     


Marvelled at our metamorphosis , you poured  chivasregal in a calabash

 Our thoughts sailed  upon endless seas ;punctuated by laughter  which revive our being .        


may the tale be narrated to your seed   that  no oxymoron   Nor  euphemism


syntex can  describe  the scald tears of a poet
