Dangerous Memories

Dangerous Memories book cover

Perhaps with the words you will be pierced, broken to understand... 

Aztec Poem
Poems of the Aztec People  (translated by Edward Kissam and Michael Schmidt )

 
 
why some people be mad at me sometimes
 
they ask me to remember
but they want me to remember
their memories 
and I keep on remembering 
mine. 

Lucille Clifton, next: new poems
