Himba Colour Perception

On the radio someone from Dulux
Is explaining how we are new to blue,
How people from northern Namibia
Have no word for it.
This must be because they've never lain on hot sand
And stared up at eternity
Or down into your mad eyes.

Spilt wine
Seeps into the soil.

Spent lust
Seeps into the soil.

Let blood
Seeps into the soil.

Salt tears
Seep into the soil.

Beneath the wilting plant
Love seeps into the soil.
