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.
 
 
Yet we still need
to splash about, 
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.
