teach me how to be
gesar’s daughter:
fierce
warrior-like
firm in the war for truth
true freedom
you could kill for —
no, i’m gandhi’s niece
but maybe not
not so easy to change
change your mind
believer in truth
no such thing in exile
manufactured truths
manufactured goods
who is who —
enemy and protector
consumerist communist
democratic
bullshit
don’t talk to me like that
ommanipemehung at kora
then spit poison
while you sip on chai after
gesar’s daughter
is lukar’s mongrel
