ascribed to text

show me where

the historical archive states

something about the state of things


no, dearheart

your “interpretation”

is not the same

as a direct quote

never you mind

what has been lost in translation


show me where

the historical archive states

something

not written

rewritten

translated

war-torn and well-traveled

where the meaning is unchanged


no dearheart

it is not possible

without the aid of imagination

to recreate whatever message

meets your needs


does it stutter?

this voice you hear

commanding through some

delusional ego-trip

that enables further damage

because the human is not humane


animal instinct

preying on familiar kin

going to service

like your invisible commands

have no place here

all out of context situations

and false hope that it will change
