Song for Teliwe

The universe is skipping over stones in a pond

in a land far from here,

It’s looking into the face

of a friend,

and finding yourself there,

her eyebrows like a row of trees

dancing with lanterns

The universe is a black crow next to her red flames

Her pale arms … a smile

A soft sigh across the plains

Just being

The Pillow

Always.
