Because I Have A Voice

because i have a voice

i can sing

i can speak and pray and pronounce words

that you can understand

pink-bellied piglets

petal-eyed bears

temple-cheeked deer

serene calf

remain speechless

my throat, it burns from all the slicing you have done

amount with all the blood 

and it would be an ocean

and all from stingless ignorance

i am here to translate their requiem for life

to you, who have forgotten how to hear…with your heart
