Poeme Au Lieu D'une Parade Du Jour De Colombe. - Poem by Michael Walker

Oui, Mon Cheri

'Desordre aux Philippines'.

Est-ce 7,000 iles
Suis-je 7,000fragments d'un pays dont
Christophe Colombe
ruina la reputation
du compas maritime?

Quelqu'un demanda a un Indien
de payer le parking de quelque part du tout?

Oui Mon Cheri

'Desordre aux Philippines'':

Ma politique quotidienne
une prise d'eau ouverte en versant de l'eau
a la pluie tard au mois de novembre.

- 'Poem Instead of a Columbus Day Parade'. June Jordan. From 'Naming Our Destiny', p.164.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is like overhearing some dialogue between June and her television-watching husband. Jordan did not like the nightly babble of TV News.
