Shaping a Future, by Isabelle Kenyon

I am not a silent poet

Fortune teller: Ask
Have we learnt from our mistakes?
Our leaders smear blood on our faces: Ask
if a necessary evil breeds death in women’s wombs: Ask
if our history has wiped out their future: Ask
if we can grow from passivity:
for you were born bloody
but do not have to go on that way.

(Wash, wash, for we are born into many layers of filth.)
