I am outside of history.
I wish I had some peanuts
It looks hungry there
In its cage.
I am inside of history.
It's hungrier
than I thought.
-Ishmael Reed
I'm watching Jericho, and finding awful pictures online of the Gaza conflict (I would link, they're too awful). History already seems hungry, from the outside. I can't imagine.

That is the most perfect poem I've seen in a long time.
