DAVID KEPPEL

Broken Interrogations

I still do not know whether I did
What you will always know
Was done to you.

Did I hold a dog
To your terrified nakedness
Or perch you on a box,
Your outstretched arms wired
To the current of fear?

Did I pile your bodies
In a pyramid of shame
And photograph you
As Pharaoh's phallic souvenir?

Did I bar you from the home
You dare not return to
Because I dared not leave?

Tell me what I have done,
I beg you, as you begged me.
Tell me what I can do,
Now there is nothing I can do
To make you forget
That my people never remember.

Or if my plea for forgiveness
Is a new twist of torture,
Then let me thirst
In the dryness of your memories
Until you reach the waters
Of my oblivion.

We must allow ourselves the joy of loving through life more than we fear our living.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one.
--John Lennon
