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.

from the Childhood Remedy and Other Such collection
