Sacrifices
by Nicolo Santilli

a saint sees the sacrifices
that lie under every paving stone
and in every mouthful of food

how a world of suffering
is condensed into every tear

and thousands died
that one may smile

and a million curses
had to be overcome
that we might love

and pledge our hearts
beyond the raging field
of desire

 


 

Nicolo Santilli is a philosopher and poet, residing in Berkeley, CA.
