“Tamar in the Tankwa – 2 Sam 13:22 OT Tamar, daughter of King David is raped and left desolate. She throws ashes upon her head, voicing her devastation and grief”

“SpaceTime”
When we sleep,
we travel to new universes.
And on some days,
when we awake,
we can’t find our way back
to the one
we started out from.

“A Broken String”
Because of a broken string
because of a people breaking the string
the earth my place is the place of
something, a thing broken,
that does not stop sounding breaking with me

Poem by Stephen Watson based on
Dia!kwain’s /xam story, Lloyd Bleek Collection

Tankwa Artscape Residency 2020

I set out to find
myself
and arrived at a place of
nothing
(entangeld with everything)
where there should be
something
I found nothing
