Deny It Not

We are of the sea
and of the caves,


has rinsed us clean
of these dim 

Yet we still need
to splash about, 
and explore dark 


Yes, we have
forgotten whence 
we came,


our desperate thirst 
for water— 

our voracious appetite 
for meat—


our hideous capacity 
for violence—

abate not.

. . . j
from the Childhood Remedy and Other Such collection
