Abstract

My country, you are hurtling us into a dark
morass. In that old war, I understood
the Viet Cong better than I understood
the Pentagon. Alienated, at daily war
in the streets and movement lofts against
my government, yet I felt hope at least
sometimes that we were pushing hard
enough to birth a dream of equality.
