By | 1 November 2019

Stumbling through Botswanan delta, the poet’s wife
lines up and frames
the Okavango natives as arsonists (maybe!), his
words tripping
down her tongue. Her rubies flash bright in the face
of all that applause.

He tells us of the collected skulls in St Nikolai
Church, severed and shelved
to deter robbers.
