In Remembrance: K Za Win – Poet

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 12, 2021 by Brother Perspective Magazine

Dear Father,

the River, whose stomach 

was cut open,  

has declared war 

on our tiny house on the bank, hasn’t she?

Right in front of the house 

you must be looking out for someone 

who will help you with 

embankment poles

to straighten the river,

to fill her holes with 

sandbags.

The poem moves from the picture of life at home to much wider themes about authoritarian power structures, corruption and inequality.

A thief is 

unarmed.

A thug is 

armed to the teeth.

If thieves are ungovernable,

if thugs are ungovernable, 

what’s the point of government? 

Whatever happens to the jungles

whatever happens to the mountains 

whatever happens to the rivers 

they don’t care. 

They love the country 

just the way they love to grate a coconut, 

from inside out, 

for coconut milk.

It was signed: 

Yours ever,

K Za Win 

Cell 1, Section 10

Thayawaddy Prison

Craig Grant (December 18, 1968 – March 24, 2021)

Craig Grant, known as muMs da Schemer, was an American poet and actor best known for his role as Arnold “Poet” Jackson on the HBO series Oz.

“I love words,” he told The Indianapolis Star in 2001. “Anybody ever wanted to buy me anything for Christmas or my birthday, they can buy me a dictionary. The bigger, the better.”

Mr. Grant died on Wednesday in Wilmington, N.C., where he was filming the Starz series “Hightown,” in which he had a recurring role. He was 52.

His manager, Sekka Scher, said the cause was complications of diabetes.
