“It Works For Me”

By Damali of Kyanjja Girls are very special. Difficult to say the least but they are special in their make. We had been at a picnic – just the three of us. Best friends since Buganda Road Primary School, even though I think Mariam and Jjuko were closer to each other. I did not mind. I had no time to […]

Super Ex (2)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: “It’s you, it’s always been you and nobody else”. I send the text hoping she will believe it. This time I mean it; I have fallen in love with her so hard. I never expected this to happen. I met Nozi when I was still a wild child, she was just as wild. We hit […]

By Damali from Kyanjja “Look, Carol, if you are going to be all feminist and insist on a BOB instead of a real man, atleast have a child. I can help you with that.” Kyazze was one of my newly found friends; you’d think we had known each other for decades but really, it was only a few weeks of […]

Energy

Philani Tyson Nombika, South Africa: The energy Smile tumbling of white bunny rabbits Squeezing for space within contours when you smile, That is cute The flush of bliss when the curtains of your eyes fall As though allowing the performer to take one last bow. In appreciation of just how you smile At how eyes glisten with tears when you […]

Super Ex (1)

By Ayanda Xaba, South Africa: “It’s you, it’s always been you and nobody else”. I read the texts and suddenly got emotional. The way I loved this guy wasn’t normal and he knew it. He knew he could do anything wrong or hurtful and I would forgive him. He knew hearing him say he loves me was my weakness. Those […]

No One But You

By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda: She never wanted anything but you Every man before or after you Was clothed in your memory. You filled her mind Her heart ached for more of you.

Wild

By Emmeline Bisiikwa, Uganda: I try to run, to hide But I end up with you anywhere. Is there a life where I get away safe? Or is it my fate to end up here Losing myself as you domesticate me I wasn’t meant to be tamed, And yet you think am a wild fire That needs putting out.   […]

Friday 13th

By Damali of Kyanjja: If you flirt with the devil you should be ready to sleep with him, or that is what they say. Who “they” are is a different matter and a discussion I cannot indulge.
