The Poet’s Alternative Narrative of History

Black and white type on a page

Stale words by monotone historians

OFFICIAL HISTORY

Bring living words from breathing faces

Of movements

That were offset, slipped off the page

Putting a face on history

The stories that need to be told

To remind us that

nothing is ever given,

Nevered handed over,

Always demanded.

Always won.
