A fire in Tulbagh – she looks
At me like her soul is on fire.
I look at her like I’m the only
One here who can kill those

I look at her like fear is
Something I’ve never known.
She looks at me and I remember
That love is something I’ve
Always known. She looks at me
And I remember that a fire burns
For me right in the heart of

We look at each other and I
Forget myself. I only vaguely
Remember the fears I used
To have. Flowers,trees, wind,
And the strangers that walk by,
Are not a distraction.
We live for this action.

Let them stare and set the
Streets alight with gossip.
Let them stare and watch a
Fire burn for me right in
The heart of Tulbagh
