Backbone of My Skeleton

Mangled and twisted

I emerge from the skeleton of my being

To seek a cure

For ailments of our universe

Misused and abused

To capitalize on ill-gotten profits

I have become a warrior’s song

Sung on a full moon

I feast with stars

Drink water from the clouds

Dance in slow silhouetted movements

Against the azure sky

In my land

Pitika Ntuli

Backbone of my Skeleton

Bone and found objects
