rhythm for s’bu

dance, a flash of skin

drum, a flash of heart

he says i am a shack-dweller

come from south-africa

here in solidarity

his shoulders

the same breadth as mine

when he speaks no yelling

his eyes so quiet

reminds me of the ocean

or a clearing

in the middle of the ocean

a person is a person wherever they are

i believe him

because he is not a man

he is a great man
