It was quite an honor and thrill to have two poems of mine translated into the Afrikaans language by my dear friend, Don Beukes. “Detoxification” and “Transcending Definitions” can be read here at his website.
An even cooler surprise was learning that he recorded recitations of my translated work on his SoundCloud page. His wonderful versions can be listened to at these links:
Definisies Sonder Perke (Transcending Definitions)
To find out more about Don’s work, please check out this in-depth interview he did for a recent Showcase Spotlight here at 17Numa where he talked about his life and debut poetry book, The Salamander Chronicles.
