“Be careful how you say your own mother’s name;
How you articulate your blood.”
Nkateko Masinga, A War Within The Blood

“If you still have your trigger finger
And your punching fists
Your township mob justice
Your mothers with whistles
Your seven-month self-defence course
If you remember your second-year Anatomy course
Particularly the Stab wound lecture
Bring them all.
Use them now”
Nkateko Masinga, A War Within The Blood

“i am sacrificial
but i am also strong
i know better than to love you to death”
Nkateko Masinga, A War Within The Blood
