Complete Poems

by Isabella Motadinyane

Dark night babe
toss and turn
the clouds above
you make the sober go drunk
come in from the cold
warm you up
sink down our throat
the clouds above
mountains so high
sink babe sink
sink a shaft
move slowly down the mountain
down our throats
toss and turn babe
sink on me
all night
dark clouds above
you make the sober go drunk
sink babe sink
sink it smooth
sink a shaft
