"To prefer to err on the side of homogenizing platitudes and motherhood statements rather than attempt to find diverse and polyphonic poetic forms, however flawed and provisional, that directly engage the intricate network of troubles that intersect in the Maguindanao Massacre . . . is to relinquish, all too easily, what one can offer in the communal effort to understand and revise the oppressive conditions that plague us, which in the poet’s case is the employment of words in the twin necessities of relentless scrutiny and long-term memory."
