Welcome Refugees

Fry the mind in volcanic headlines
Or meet the descendants of Life,
A life lived on a journey where it ends –
Still alive! A demand for a graceful
Hug, from residents, from homes –
Secured with no security guards to
Secure the perimeter or overhead
Airstrikes producing an acidic rain
That purified our souls to annihilation,
Seeking refuge away from a man
Of inorganic culture cultivated from
Corrupted minds of many men,
Not women; they are our refuge,
Cheering organic cultivation at the
Train station – not a strike,
And then my heartbeat delivered a
Tearful. Joyful. Beautiful. Heart-full. Beat.
Beating the cultures of violence,
To violate my face with a smile,
Unusual face, unusual faces,
Men, now, giving me water, juice,
Sandwich – our last meal replaced
Our last, and last but not least:
Banners from residents, from homes –
“Refugees Are Welcomed”.
