We Work

We work,
We write
To create life,
Create worlds
In new contexts,
With new possibilities
On ancient foundations.
 
Nothing about this work is easy
“Tell no lies, claim no easy victories,” said Cabral.
 
Yet, “we” also forget,
and repress
Those memories.
Yet, “we” concede,
and balk
At those possibilities.
 
Instead, “we” fight…
And settle for [a place in] the world as is,
 
Why do “we” settle for hell?
Negotiate with the devil?
What will “we” tell our children?
