Is it possible for our New Europeans to possess virtues?

They would have to make friends

with our heartfelt desires and most secret needs.

They would have to know how to appease

our hazardous curiosity,

our mellow disguises,

and the candy-coated cruelties of our spirit…

Somewhere, buried deep

within the labyrinth of consciousness,

they undoubtedly lurk,

these virtues,

so eager for our fosterage.
