One Child Document or Kipandelisho


Angel, no water,

And they come at you again,
Bearing gifts,

Crimson hatred,
Pushed through,

Clenched fingers, no
We let the outside rule our lives inside, and

Become angry,

Just like a tree laden with fruit bows down,
Green, green

Bearing fruit,
Bowing to the ground,

One child is not enough,
In the cool summer breeze –

Think it’s about birth control, there was-

Always enough left, to go around
But the,

Plump lady,

In hip-huggers,
In a scrum with her husband in the dirty shirt, smoking

A dirty cigarette,

Decides to leave in the morning, is
Uncomfortable-

And he agrees.
Morning it is.

Self – Discipline

The basis of self-discipline is not the self, you
You’re neck is as long as an antelope,

Good batteries,

The lazy man does not roast his game,
Priorities,

Scientific,
Ink,

Hate!

Despite,
Believe,

Because,
Democracy!

Religion,
God!

Kenyan,
Cheerleader, and

I need a one dance,
Waiting for you,

John Denver,

What’s in the way,
Is the way,

Success
Is my birthright; wait!

Death is a part of it!

Anything I can do as a horse,
Let to water to drink,

Donkey!

Ancestral freedom is free.
They all went to win, Philosophy

And have not looked through the Telescope.

If only

If only I had the time, the
Patience,

Less ambition, if
Only I knew right from wrong, I

Would change the world, paint it

Pink, I would
Love freely, if

Only I could.

Shoes

Shoes make the world go round,
Steady shoes,

Come home,
Stilettos,

Come sweet,
Yellow,

High heels,

Carry intention,
Fresh,

Stride,
Steady,

Sure,

Move,
The man in front, sure

Move the world,
Brogues,

Sure,

You can ask the time,
Leather loafer, certainly

Have my number,
Gazelle in yellow.

Hippie

Envy in a bright blue dress,
Sways down the street, turning

The doll the child is holding,
Into trash.

The green plaid skirt –
Burberry,

Is useless in the wake of this drunk apparition,
And you deserve more,

Faster.

Stress, the suave gentleman in the red suit and orange,
Glinting cuff-links,

Plots his move.

Anger gathers dust around the
Isolated little girl, gathers

Whisper and,
Rumour,

Sets them chattering; I
Deserve better, I

Don’t see why I,
Cannot have that doll,

That she has, it’s,

Not fair to,
Make me wait,

In plain sight, of
It with the straight,

Hair,
That’s over there,

With her,
Demon!

I will find my flip flops and search you out,
And give you a large, brown flower!

Rhumba

Gentleness is a fertilizer, a
Rhumba,

Swaying wheat,
Balanced corn,

In a field,
Caressed by rain, it is

Kindness
To yourself,

Ploughing, when the harrow is ready,
And sweating,

Gentleness,

Glistening off chests, is
The masculine scent of forgiveness,

The feminine of,
Breaking ground,

Gentleman or Boer, order

In the house,
Order!

Give in.

Puppets of routine

A morning bird call broke my rhythm.

Destroy a wall, why don’t you
Power through patterns,

Holding you back;
Anger is a useless form of being.

I like to move it, move it,
Physically fit,
We can be better, we

Can always be better, save
The Earth,

Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?

You have been trapped by what you said,
Ensnared by the words of your mouth.

Revenge and shame,
Are not cool rivers,

Are not brooks,
Are not life.

That comes with forgiveness, and
A habit is not what a Nun wears.

My sister dropped her passport

My father left without saying goodbye,
Because I was late,
And CITES will not wait, for
African Leaders to emerge,
Female or male,
From the UN or not,
And the son was not at home to say goodbye
-partying as usual-
And my sister lost her passport on the airport road, we

Had to go back and hunt for it,
Lions in a pack,
Sniffing the grass,
Finding freedom, or
Yellowed inoculation cards, or
Rare Visas,
And I rushed back,

I Did,

After the bar, where I was crying
For the father whose glass ceiling meant that,
Africans cannot lead the world imagination, just
It’s institutions.

Anyway,
We said goodbye happily,

And we know what was in the heart.

“…And For This Reason…”

Add to faith, goodness;
To goodness, knowledge;
To knowledge, self-control;
To self-control, perseverance;
To perseverance, clean intention;
To this intention, brotherly-kindness, and
To brotherly-kindness, love.

No-one understands me.
No-one appreciates me.
You never listen.

You never say, “I love you.”

Yet in the cool spaces between impressing others and,
Being pleasant to God, how

Are you?
How am I? And,

Then I know,

How wonderful it is,
To ache to be pleasing to God.

-2nd Peter 1:5-7-

The Rat Only Comes When You Don’t Have A Stick To Kill It.

A stitch in time saves nine.
Strike whilst the iron is hot.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, rage
Against the dying of the day, put

Your eggs in one basket,
Scrambled, and

When you rattle a snake expect a bite.

Enough.
Let sleeping dogs lie.

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush, two
Peas in a pod –

Tomorrow never comes.
Diamonds are forever.

Nations rise and fall on words, and
We can afford to speak good,

-Ak-

Can’t you take a joke?
I was being sarcastic,

Yeah.

I ‘ain’t paying a penny for your thoughts.
Even a farthing.

I’m not laughing with you,
Laughing at others,

I am not.

Here,
Say something kind.

A stitch in time saves nine.

The greatest of teachers

The greatest of teachers won’t hesitate,
And fear is not the end of this.

Only love can save us now, 

Fom barren landscape,
The Greatest of teachers, 

Being more than words,
Know already that wisdom is feminine,

Did not birth, nor was she birthed, 

Is freedom robes,
Robes for the homeless,

Obadiah, Habakkuk, Nahum and Zephaniah, Lamentations and
The Song of Songs,

Alone in church,
Now,

Dance.

Standing Behind People

short poetry words move god philosophy ancestor

 

 

You are the,
Reduction,

Sweet wine, the
Product of every,

Human Being,
Before you, and

That is all;

Behind every,
Great human, is

God,

Behind every great,
Man, a woman

A woman, a man
A man, a man and

A woman, a woman, you
Are the original ancestor,

You.
