Gert Strydom

Freshman - 1,129 Points (03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Arrival [1]

When the aeroplane does descend
at Jan Smuts airport
(or whatever they now call it)
lights lie as far as I can see,
they glitter like jewels in the night
and there is a hodgepodge of people
that waits upon their luggage
and I am waiting on a briefcase and suitcase
