Poetry for GBV 15 – SONNET OF THE WOMEN, THE BLACK AND THE INFECTED

SONNET OF THE WOMEN, THE BLACK AND THE INFECTED

On the bed is a dying body
Snared by a quilt
Perfect patchwork
Different colours of domination
Form fabrics that make the quilt
She drowns where two rivers meet
She will be buried by two colliding mountains
She is incarnated on the bed-
Here fire engulfs kerosene
The monster eats white blood cells
The voiceless cannot protect themselves
She is the base and not most vulnerable

He comes staggering, shoves himself down her well
She comes broken, sells her own well
