Looking for Connections – Linguistically Transparent,
A conundrum that marks the border between communities
They are not us – they Came Without Papers …..
Are they legal ?
Why are they carrying that young Woman ?
What about the boy on the beach ?
His family was going to Canada.
His Aunt weeps there – the village is divided.
Say “aboot”, eh.
Y’know, like they say Toronnah Canada , eh.
Depends on what party you are going to…………
Water laps at shore –
waves goodbye as small child’s dreams
crash on rock borders .
Salty lips, tears dry –
a bitter salve.
How many ways here –
paths of thorny ground rules cut –
hopes bleed, red ink dries.
