Taushiro Peace Gone - Poem by Kimberly Burnham

No one seems to know
how to say peace in Taushiro
there is no one to ask
we know how to say hello
"uñuntero"
or ask for water
"vei"
point to the fire
"hontoꞌsunaꞌcuꞌ"
but there is no one left to talk to in Taushiro
no one in Northern Peru
near the Tigre river and Aucayacu River
in the state of Loreto.
only a few words are left like 5
"ukontawa" all the hand
or 10 "ashintu" many
but peace or paz or paix
not one of them

Topic(s) of this poem: fire, hello, peace, peace day, peaceful, water
