The Present is a Dangerous Place to Live

Front Cover
Third World Press, 1993 - Poetry - 35 pages
In Kgositsile's poetry, you hear ... the voice of the African priest speaking directly to your soul. His vision is shot through with the fundamental, whether he is talking about ancestral things or contemporary nerve failures and self-betrayals. ... Kgositsile is about the fertility rites by which life is made rich or by which we betray, if we are merely going through zombie motions.--Introduction.
