Melting snowflakes

Shelling

Afterwards

Children resume

The street soccer match

Endurance

Life, Poetry

I am a present tense

Even in a body

Not my own.

Stroking your poisoned scalp

I watch for memories of

silk, scarlet locks

Candles on

urban street corner

Youth, age––?

 

 

3 Haiku

Poetry, politics
These three haiku came out of my experience working for food justice and access in Boston over the school year.

He asks for food.
my wallet’s empty
is my heart full?

Month’s end:
      Neighborhood market––
      No SNAP Accepted.

Midnight
recalling the barren fridge
hunger.

Truth & Justice

Poetry, politics

 

Truth

It’s there; filmed in black and white
screaming for air
denied its natural right.

 

Justice

In some cases.

the system can’t hold itself

sometimes.

 

Undocumented slumber

To the Dreamers:

perhaps it was good to

postpone the awakening.
