No one talks to a white poet and says, “How do you feel about your complicity in indirectly fucking so many people over?”


It's all personal for me. It’s the refusal to accept subjectivity as pretext for subjugation.


I don’t find the need to declare Gaza, to name a place. Even Gaza now becomes a safe reflex for those of us who prefer to sigh. Gaza becomes a logo of suffering to be consumed by the “witness” poets of the western world, if and when the poem that mentions Gaza is not frowned upon for its “politics.”
