..Waveland Drive

The house of prayer
in the middle of  the chiming city
is filled with kind eyes,
and hugs inhabit its walls.
No man has judged this
Tainted lover
And no woman has called
me out on my shortcomings

I am like no one else
Yet their arms extended
Even to me
The insatiable
The tainted delinquent child
Whose trials with religion
Spun her head into a ponytail of exhaustion

Messages coincide and fall like sudden
Sinners from God’s grasp
I , adolescent wanderer, wonder often
about the pits of darkness
And the Candleholder’s heart
Sitting there,
  he flicks lost souls into the dormant eye of
A flame that’s dancing on the tip of a wick.

I’m in Chicago

I’m in Chicago and I’m people-hungry (not literally, not like the zombie apocalypse guy). I mean I’m new to the city and I’d like to find some things to do and have the pleasure of meeting the exciting people of Chicago. I want to unravel this city and feast on what beauty it has to offer me. So if you’re in Chicago and you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. By the way: I am always up for anything poetry-related, music-related , good-time related. Share this city with me. I’d really appreciate it if you could let me know, feel free to contact me at zanele.chisala@gmail.com .
