...the stylized look of ...submission
...the bizarre look of suicide
...the dehumanized look of fear


[A Poem]


Jayne Cortez
May 10, 1936 - December 28, 2012

 
And if we don't fight
if we don't resist
if we don't organize and unify and
get the power to control our own lives
then we will wear
the exaggerated look of captivity
the stylized look of submission
the bizarre look of suicide
the dehumanized look of fear
and the decomposed look of repression
forever and ever and ever
And there it
                   is...







"Speaking Truth To Empower."
