rivers of colonizer blood

After “Exterminate All the Brutes” by Sven Lindqvist.

your vision
framed by planks salvaged from a ransacked village

wrinkles in your brain
wagon wheel tracks across the plains

your home 
warmed by the flames of broken treaties

the tump-tump in your chest
bullets entering temples

your veins
rivers of colonizer blood
