Four Places in Bogotá (4/4): Centro de Memoria, Paz y Reconciliación
Man, myth and material meet in four places in Bogotá.
A series of four poems.
Centro de Memoria, Paz y Reconciliación
enormous gravestone rises
bloody poor grounds
cuts her soft yellow soil
a cross of deep wounds
where damage and damaged descend
into the been that bore them
a present past stilled
erased in black of mirror
weaves their needle thread by threat
to handmade blankets
