‘Black and Benevolent is the Dark’ By Ngoma Bishop

A confused and terminally ill patient lies on his hospital awaiting his transition.When the beginning and the end of lives intertwine, apparently incompatible sentient life forms become inextricably linked as they transmute. The result is that the parameters of past and present and the concepts of gender realities or illusions merge into one metaphysical blur.
