Is there a contradiction –
In the predilection
the hour, the life, the moment?
When in sweet countenance, the sand
becomes a fragrance and drips, measuring
greatness, or inferiority…
in the present and the past…
My homeland is neither grand nor deficient,
Or it is both…
The sonnet of our collective youth
wrote a parallel future. Inquiring
in matters of sameness…
Contingent on issues of periodic vibration
in the interest of our state
The chorus of my grandfathers
to which I aspire splintered in application of intent.
has come home. The revolution
Seeks to define the substance
Of the justification.
The nobleness of the deficiency
is encompassed in the correctness of confrontation
in the journey to utopia.
