Poetics: In honor of Keorapetse ‘Willie’ Kgositsile

In his own words:

‘You cannot teach someone how to be a poet. Until you have acquired the skills to write you do not know what kind of a writer you will be…I think we [South Africans] have a big problem when it comes to reading. There are a lot of people who think they can become writers without reading. You have to read, everything and anything.’ (in UCT Monday Paper, Volume 21.11, 19 May 2002)

If I could sing

I want to remain
Wild
Like a young song
Unleashed
Aspiring
To the serenity
Of a Japanese morning
Hour
In which not a single leaf
Stirs above
Water stone and tree
If I could sing
Like Neruda I would
Weave a song about
The size of your worldwide heart.
