Changing times

David Kapp, Belthorn Estate

Time

A musician

(and a sangoma too)

releases an album

at a time

of lockdown

He can’t perform

for crowds

in concerts

to launch

(he talks time

he talks of time

in these challenging

and changed times)

A conductor

of a classical bent

keeps busy

in the absence

of an orchestra

(he has books

the internet

and the space

in which to function)

(elsewhere we see

a city breaking down

structures people want to call their homes)

The times

they are

changing

and have

changed

they tick away

these moments

that make up

a dull day

(to misquote

some hoary-old

from

another time)

Moments

in time

Ticking

until

The next

time
