Child on a Swaying Crescent Moon 

I am a child swaying on a crescent moon bone

I carry rivers in my body and my soul

Rumblings of memory and history

I feel them in my falcate bones

As I ride the moon to fetch water

In rivers where mermaids of apartheid history reside

Despite all this

I have become a fluid universe

Of my dreams
