I’m a canal in Europe where bodies are floating
I’m a mass grave I’m the life that returns
I’m a table set with room for the Stranger

I’m a man-child praising God he’s a man

I have dreamed of Zion I’ve dreamed of world revolution

I’m a corpse dredged from a canal in Berlin
a river in Mississippi I’m a woman standing

I am standing here in your poem. Unsatisfied
