Erasure Remnant 

01/12/2017

Every erasure of history 

is already a remnant 

of what is denied, 

what is denied 

still haunting/informing, taunting

the present, 

distorting, twisting, choking, 

displaying 

this

until made visible, 

until admitted, 

until validated, 

until worked through, 

until made transparent, 

until those who have been denied

are made whole

and unapart,

until they are welcomed, 

until they are us. 

But it cannot be

only accomplished piecemeal, 

in time, 

for that linear way 

is an endless and

ever

incomplete striving. 

Instead:

here it is,

going towards 

fulfillment;

here it is, 

fulfillment 

going towards.
