She walked a painful lane home

06-22 Motadinyane
Isabella Motadinyane
South African
1963 – 2003

She walked a painful lane home
wiping tears of change
from her soiled body
but told no one about those fakes

Now her poison intake
lays skin on her bones
perspires with naked truth

Reading her medical record
as three little words
holding back the years
