Declaration by Uchechukwu Onyedikam/Christina Chin



The Declaration


empty belly —

the labourers make noise

still noise


remain under

oppressive rule


muted —

guns silencing us

helmets & boots


documents

of human rights

make no difference


bombs blast

everywhere we go

from the past


declaration…

the drafts differing

from regions

lifeless —

strapped to my back

he's not dead


flee to flood-prone

camps


at the traffic light

tapping on my windshield

a teenage beggar
