Two Poems

Abstract

The world wasn't born yesterday. The past inflects the present, and it is our knowledge, interpretation and use of history enables us to intervene there. I do not mean the kind of knowledge you learn in schools, but a lived political knowing, in language and action -- this is our natality. In my writing, and in my everyday living breathing body, I want to help to create a map to a future free from the terror of the world we've inherited. I want to write towards a place where we can find each other, now and then.
