Deny It Not

Deny It Not

We are of the sea

and of the caves,

though 

time 

has rinsed us clean

of these dim 

memories.

And yet we still long

to splash about, 

ride the tumultuous waves,

and 

explore dark spaces.

Yes, we have

forgotten whence 

we came,

but  

our desperate thirst for water— 

our voracious appetite for meat—

and 

our hideous capacity for violence—

abate not.
