Brotherman/le rock

i hack my past to once more commune with you like an *internaut

i hack  my heart to retrieve your essence

so that I can invoke r bygone moments

as time fashion my heart to accept your fleeting

i tiptoe through the labyrinths of my mind to re-enact your clean deeds bredren

so that i can once more reawaken your philosophies

to bring them to utility as like an illusive serpent the present  roll onward.

My first pair of tekkies you bought

& i blended with my peers who had ‘’em ‘ready

guiding me concerning youthful things

& as it dawned to cope with manhood

affirmed in the townshipscape

to stir the remnants of our memories to animation i hack the past

and as your potent teachings echo I remember brother man your fullness.

Dedicated to Tseko Man Dicksy Nkosi (1966 – 2004)
