Healing, standing beneath the stars
(for Caroline and Vincent)

    I pour my Khoi
soul into the splendid monster of the swimming pool. My body
    aches for water
   soul1_400 across my limbs.
    The swimming
pool in winter. Pretending stroke-for-stroke that I am reaching
    the far side. The
    shallow side. I
    pour my soul into
    the cool autumn
mornings into the chill of

the air.

    I must not eat.
    I must not eat.

I have to watch
my Kalahari-figure.
I have to watch
my Karoo-figure.

    Autumn is like milk and honey in my mouth.
    Blue violets come in spring. There’s healing

for the soul in summer. Heat, dust, warmth and walks.
