Death by Ndongolera C. Mwangupili


What being, what animal and
What person hunts death
On earth or in the under world
Without futility and fear?
Only death overcomes death
But life – our life – fears death
And, may be, death is fear.
May be, those of us, walking
And fearing death, are dead in fear
And those feared dead are dead living.

Ndongolera C. Mwangupili is a poet, fiction writer and essayist from Malawi.
