how can i not be afraid where these border politics leave us

im born on this side of the fence. my mother on the other side

she has not gone back in over 20 years. I’m on the same boat.

we are standing here. on this side of turtle island. watching

donald trump talk about illegals. and border crossers.

and murder and rape. and how walls work. he says to ask

israel. he’s not talking to me. but of another bordered wall.

of another stolen land. of another genocide. just ask.

just ask to be invisible. to be paperless. undocumented.

just as to be silent and unaware. uninformed. about what

is happening to these children. crossed out. whats happening

to these grandmothers without home or land.
