in the end, we will
have spent more time staring up
through the raised arms of

our fig tree than down at those whose

across the border,

across the border,
under the chain, above the
fence, beyond the
wall – a history
of man-made
barriers,
keeping people
in their place

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

here we are, crossing

here we are, crossing
borders without

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

outside looking in,

mid-flight, thoughts crossing

mid-flight, thoughts crossing
state lines, each one still holding
onto a piece of

you, despite the rattling
of wings, life’s uncertainty

there are silences

there are silences
that can cross
borders, permeate
time, saw you

the world makes borders

for every longitude

for every longitude

draws a new doodle
to symbolize this
street, this corner,
this hand-holding.
for every latitude,
we break down in
laughter, spin
the compass
