POEM: on the western edge of johannesburg


jackals call on the early-morning air
along the jukskei
just shy of lonehill
and in the blue distance
lies the magaliesberg
its prehistoric rocks
sheltering the secrets of an ancient seabed
now turned to bushveld
suikerbos      klipels      kiepersol      karee
