planetwalkers

i dreamed i walked across the oceans
from the horned temples of axum
i walked to yemen to malaysia
then swam south to the shores of australasia
then back home again to zanzibar,
and migrating westwards,
i gave birth to a son in nigeria whose
dna matches, the twin who walked
on water to papua new guinea.

the news of my twin son caused me
to walk back south, then east to olduvai
in search of my sister who'd left a trail
of how she climbed up the rock of gibraltar,
to germany and england
where she birthed a set of caucasoids
who went as far north as siberia,
skating on ice
and walking on water to america
and down,
down
south
she went
to the basin of the amazon
while some of her children crossed to the caribbean.
 
we have walked
and
walked                                                                                       
and
walked
and
walked
till
there was nowhere left to walk.                

70 000 years later,
we meet again                                                         
you : me,
do you remember, sister?
