What is POETRY?

ARYAN KAGANOF




poem for andile mngxitama
on the morning of that splendid day of looting
the blacks poured in to gardens wearing
pangas and machettes, cut their way
into melissa’s, and ordered 43 000
flat whites
to go

  4. My personal interpretation.

    Mellisa's is the shop in the Gardens area of Cape Town. The whites are having their flat white coffees there. Then the darkies come wielding machetes and pangas, and order take away latte's.
    Or act violent towards Mellissa's patrons.

    Are darkies wild barbaric panga baring people out to violate white people?
