an experiment in permaculture poetics



Thirteen :: collaborative curation :: each other


andábamos buscando


               the word nosotros.


we spoke to each other


between grief & mourning


               & still no truce.


the work keeps going—


               tries to forgive


               to re-love


the world denied by the world


the common tongue
