you said some people

you said some people
were not built to venture into
the unknown – so when

the refugees came to them, they
were forced into a new language

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: language

place, time, mindset –

place, time, mindset –
how we can jostle
for room to catch
a glimpse of the
night sky
from a window
of an asylum –
another seizing up
of the mind, perception
collapsing to the nth power
