art is liberation

the inner resources

of the people

that cannot simply be reduced

to resistance

this cultural energy 

is also power

but it is a power

not meant to dominate

nor resist but creatively

for a people

to become themselves

the thing you are most
afraid to write.

write that.

how we “re” build

our own house

I have spent enough time

taking down the master’s house

and now i want  

most of my energy

to go into visioning and  

building our new house
