Stat(e)-Us

By Naciza Masikini


my body is a border crossing

lines have been drawn

routes mapped

boundaries reconfigured

 

 

                                                I Am Home To Carnage.

 

                                                                     Revolution.

                                                            Destruction.

 

 

i have been pillaged

                                    by you.

redefined

                                    by you.

 

                                          you and your imaginaries.

                                                                                   

 

 

outsider within.

 

 

 

even though this land is mine.
