by Ethel Mortenson Davis

When I came close
to you,
you took a knife
and began
stabbing me all over.

the pain
was so great
I could hardly
bear it.

But, as I looked
into the mirror
there were
no wounds, no blood.

But I felt great pain
and many stab wounds.
How could this be?

I looked again
into the mirror,
and on your chest
were many wounds,
blood was pouring out
all over
your body.

a poster design by Alazanto, Kevin Davis, our son

Kevin’s note with the design: A simple play on the Sudanese flag to bring greater attention towards the ongoing Darfur situation.

The Darfur conflict is still ongoing even though the region, the size of France, gained independence in 2011. Kevin was part of the movement to protest what he saw as genocide in Darfur and created this poster as part of that movement. The poster gained national notice.
