Two Poems ~ Khethiwe Mlambo

What If

What if your pillow can
collect your dreams and you
can just plug them in and watch?

What if a girl's favourite song
can tell you more about her
than her lips can?

What if the puzzles in
our lives can bring peace?
What if we can piece it
up with the peace and love
and make it the old days?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Untitled

Out of a land laid waste
to a land untamed,
monster-ridden
to a land built
a ruined rag-tag band -
in his arms tenderly
he carried bravery
the first rule of being king!
