Cappuccino kiss

Tuesday, 14 August 2007

The room is stockinged in low red light
a black lady leans across the yellow
Mahogany bar, pushes her lips out
in a sultry kiss me pout, the dim light
falling all around, ravishes her cheeks
exacerbating her angular features.

A white man leans forward, ever so slightly
closer, his identity lost in his back 
of anonymity, the thumping drums
of kwaito fill the room, a highlight
softens her lips, a smile her pretty face
the faceless man relents, his lips find hers
and their eyes close, as they hold each other
in a stuff Apartheid kiss
