Matangi Tai by Sia Figiel
I have never heard of this sad story until now.
and thanks to Tuesday Poem, they've also linked to this poem:
Songs of the fat brown woman by Sia Figiel
Now,..I can see through the kamputer screen that all 3 of you who read my blog are already switched off with the word "POEM" but rest easy, the poems written by this author are ...beautiful, soul searching and best of all, even an un-literatured (new word right thuuur), untrained anti-poem goddess like me - is loving it.
So if you hate poems,....make these the only two poems you will even read.
