TRAPPED

21 November 2009

Satur Sulit

i am careful
not to interfere
in the culture
of the native.
i am too alien,
trapped in the ways
of my masters:
by their language
in their thinking,
by their weapons
in their wars,
by their rule
in their methods,
caught, trapped
in a story
essentially
incomprehensible
to the equable
native’s nature.
