Violence at bedtime (2003)

Your rage is all-consuming:

your burn villages, murder civilians, drop bombs.

Your aggression is chemical warfare,

tanks bulldozing;

snipers at short-range.

 

Sign the peace agreement.

Look at the road map.

I’m not the enemy.

Stop shooting me:

I’m cowering in the corner

waiting for the violence

to stop.
