by Zama Madinana


who said sello is dead
coz he lives in the quiet violence of dreams
he tells tales of tormented souls
& deciphers the hidden stars
dangling under azanian skies
he charms you
to dig from the pages of his fiction
he is immortal like dambudzo
he is the undying lyrical wizard
he is a soldier of literature
