    I support all people on earth
    who have bodies like and unlike my body,
    skins and moles and old scars,
    secret and public hair,
    crooked toes. I support
    those who have done nothing large.

    lean angular cheeks, strutting hips
    and blooming hair, without thinking of
    the skulls at the catacombs in Lima, Peru.
