My Peace Is Different
Mauricio Gomes

I do not want this white, 
pale, sneaky peace.
Made in laboratories and cabinets
I do not want a quieter peace 
between barbed wires and barricades
I do not want peace 
in a white bombshell

My peace has blood 
flowing in its veins.
He is live! rosy
He walks, he does not fly! 
He carries the ancestral force of humans 

(Maurício Gomes is a poet, professor, writer, and cultural journalist living in São Paulo, Brazil. His work has been published in anthologies and literary magazines, and he has participated in various international poetry festivals.)
