by Richard L. Provencher

From Africa

Johannesburg and old memories, of
mission houses
love and tears a blessing. Skin scarred
yet full of personality.
Go well, dear friend.

Man must do. I've been in prison,
I've done bad things. Apartheid.
Everything is diamond mines
with black blood.
Stay well, friend of friends.

Poverty, pain, suffering
South Africa 1946.
Go well, my father.
