a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark


Why do we have to slaughter
our love in the gallows
of rudeness and indifference?

Why do we have
to chop off our love
with the sharp knives
of hate, anger and fear?

Why do we have to come
to these gallows
and slaughter our love?

Why do we have to proclaim
the death of our love?

To My Father
Human Alienation
Of Friendship and Human Alienation
