for Imah, I’m unfree.

 

tell me my state of being, redefine my freedom.

tell me I don’t know freedom, tell me I don’t know it.

tell me it can be bought as surely as modernity and her sisters, three.

 

if land is the child we punish and protect

when it will not bow to our seasons

why are you punishing us for inhabiting it?

why do you come between hands and land, that are as

salt and sea?

 

for Imah, I’m unfree.
