empty in the day.

grown ups gone to work,

kids to school, learning things they

will forget

quiet in the night

grown ups asleep

kids staying up, reading beneath

the blanket

house, though a home is anywhere, not just a house

a wistful dream for those fleeing

discrimination across the border,

crammed into tiny boats, with only

their hope of finding a home and

their fear of drowning for fuel
