Imprisoned ...a poem


There are some
who insist
only rage and armed resistance
will liberate Palestine

And some who insist
that the Right of Return
negates negotiations
as if the hungry and the poor-
the disenfranchised refugees
will have manna from heaven
on their way home.

Each echo chamber
builds base, bulwark,
and lid
like a coffin...

the cemetery grows.
