this city
which cradles and betrays me

i cannot sing you
though your contradictions make me

instead speak
love filtered through horror

not pride, nor resilience
not blame, nor honour

horror past, horror here
horror to come, horror elsewhere

may your economy dissolve
into a politics of care

not bravery
though many here be brave

not fearlessness
let not fear be cause of shame

forget not slavery
forget not the slave

what other cities might we build
in your name
