from Crows and Rages


      Third World



      I love you sunrise after sunrise. I love you dark brown earth.
      I love you sweat, bread, wood. I love you fruits, fish. I love you
      rivers, valleys, shy birds, forests. I love you ballads, lullabies,
      prayers. I love you workers, markets, factories, fields of tears,
      famine, poison. I love you history, culture. I love you slaves,
      bullets, guns, manifestos of resistance.
