I donít think the thought should be discounted altogether. we are after all in the new world. created not from conquer or conquest. a populous without flesh, bone or pigment
if ever there was a chance for us to just do, just be. this is it.
that said, itís complicated, obviously we donít fold our lives neatly into a box before we come here, and the two worlds are inextricably linked
we carry things with us. flags, ideals, history, culture etc so itís probably reality-less to think we can integrate ourselves to the full potential offered
I can understand a level of apathy, I donít think thatís a bad thing. also donít think thereís anything wrong with highlighting the talents of poets through competition or thread. through language, or culture, or shared hardships, joy, gender or whatever.
