These are poems written in the past few years of a personal displacement from Africa to England to Germany and back to England, from a loss of language, family, friends and identity to the struggle to find new roots again and again. The Russian philosopher, Uspensky, said "when a man loses his references, he goes insane." This collection deals with that particular and peculiar situation that all enforced emigrants experience and echo what is usually left unsaid. Currently, there are several million Zimbabweans living as semi-refugees, chased from their homeland either by fear or by neccessity for survival. The work in this book goes below the surface to that country of the mind all aliens inhabit, the place without borders or where the rites of passage are not passports, papers or documents but survival and the search for reason and new meaning.
