There is a reason

that we hear about

places like Barcelona

and not about

places like Bulu Sheikh,


Spain colonized and

Somalia was colonized.


I wonder if the terrorists

in Barcelona

saw the statue

of Christopher Columbus

before driving into the crowd


I wonder if it mattered

to the civilians we killed

in Bulu Sheikh

that Americans don’t

consider themselves








About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
