2.

the first step
is recognition:

that there are those
to whom the
hostility
of this country
was never
disguised
as a welcome hand

the legacies of war
live on
in our bones
in the land

of the lies
that we’ve been told
the greatest
is that the war
on this land
ever stopped

that the invaders
still commit
quiet,
slow
massacres

and every
so often
we are pulled
to pay attention
to the noise.
