Comments about Guy LeCharles Gonzalez
Call me Fulano.
I am a poet
come armed with the gift of fire.
I do not revel in memories of when we were kings
taking pride in conquered lands
my mixed blood on too many different hands
to hate recklessly
words of ancestors
who have no home to remember
no history to explore.
History is the autobiography of the victor
repeating again and again
as borders cross people
civilizations in ruins
cultures resemble Rubik's cubes
several squares missing . . .
tossed aside like last year's forgotten ...
