To Retreat is not to Flee


Bend backwards land of my ancestors

Tilt the universe

Let the multicultural world look itself in the eye

Read its reflections and

 write a poem of hope

In this season of death threats

 from invisible forces

That compel us to lock ourselves 

In our shacks and mansions

Washing our hands

Praying for salvation!
