I too have declared war

(in memory of Salamo Arouch)

I will live and survive and answer
why I took up the fight.

Why, delegated, I fight to the death.

(Dancing away from darkness,
wrapped up tight into fists

Dancing with the flames,
boxing clever)

I will tell all the people on earth
how ghosts say farewell,

going without saying.
