His parents weave baskets.

How could they have known

their son would leave

and strike out

against corruption?

Become a hero


for justice?

The regime weaves strategies

to retain power

and contain rebellion,

but the fibers will not hold

like those of love and alliance.

He is dying for his mother

for his father and solidarity,

heroically alone,

but there are millions

holding their breath

with hope

the basket holds.
