Europe and Africa

Democratic experiments
start with entry
then a discussion
or
a stare
and
retreat
then a private discussion about
the first discussion
or
stare
Africa first
then some Africans left
then some Africans followed
and the two groups merged
somehow
for several hundred years
or more
then
the first group to leave
said
enough
the first group controls
the second group
the second group is not really
the second group anymore
and it was always the only group
anyway
but
they leave
or die
or something like that
and then
the first group
goes after the second group
who went back to Africa
if they didn’t die
or something like that
then the first group controls the second
for a few hundred years
until the second group
remembers
they were the only real group
the human group
the true nationalists
via
human prototype
for the world
human in fact means African
you cannot be human unless you are African
you cannot be African if earth is not your home
the real group returns to where the first group to leave
stays
and that is today
the day
that so-called cultural purity
became a possibility although it
is way
way
way
too late
your Spanish is my Arabic
your French is my guttural
your Scotland is my Queen Scota
your gypsy is my gyptian
no seriously
it’s ours
meaning yours
meaning all of ours
this idea
of separation
is a hilarious fantasy
I am you
and you are
me
this is not the beginning
of the end
this is the end
of the beginning of the struggle
not really to win
but of people to think
that they are as different
as a house is
to a nail
instead of as essential
as a nail is to a house
stop thinking
camis means shirt
and camisa means blouse
and chemise is just
some invention
what’s the difference
and then I say
woman
and
man
were never as more
metaphoric of this idea
as we have different shapes
but still the same
blueprint
you can’t skin a cat
because the cat is too fast
for you
grow up
