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.
