The body of the revolution
burned before the millions
the color of wet earth shining
could see within it
their own eyes staring back
secrets they do not want
us to ask
the dead

body of the revolution betrayed in
the jungle, the body that fell
into a mouth of hungry cities
chewing the light, o body
of a million eyes
seeing the world all at once
while feeding it your lives.
