Last Call for artists: Tribute to Julius Chingono (Mudhara Judza)

The Embassy of Spain would like to organise an homage to the late Mr. Julius Chingono, on the first anniversary of this death last January 2nd 2010. Family, friends and associates are invited to gather together to pay tribute to the talent of one of Zimbabwe’s funniest and yet most serious poets and champion of the poor and the marginalised.

The Embassy welcomes all ideas for and contributions towards this event to be given altruistically in his honour from those who knew him. In order to participate with a literary or poetic work for inclusion in the programme, we would appreciate creations of not more than 20 lines. 
All artform are welcome (songs music, paintings, poetry, etc)
The Embassy will select the most creative and emotive contributions to be performed on the night. 
Please send your ideas by email to Ms Marina GarcĂ­a, before the 20th of January 2012.

Lost touch

Some say,
go to the slums
where people scavenge
for scrap to survive.

Others say,
you have to be observant
you may not notice her
with her deformed face
cut by the violence
at the dump site.

Eulogy to a Friend

It is not fair friend.
How could you leave her
before she enjoyed
your body warmth?

Wet Dreams

Reading in my library
that Wednesday morning
a message came through a friend
I found her already in bed
she took me by surprise
in a moment
my pant was done
afterwards, I discovered
it was not a dream
but I was still a virgin
