(for my border poems)

We can feel
so much rage
in this
voice
but show
don’t tell

This line
where your four
year old speaker leaves
his abuelita
behind
reminds me of
_______
& _______
check them out

Pollero
is a good word
(is Spanish?)
(italics?)

We like the four-by-four
its trunk
we like the desert & your use of
snuck

Is it true
are people really smuggled through
like this

We just don’t buy
that a toddler could really fit
inside

It’s cluttered
unclear
pls show

Suggestions for revision
MORE
abuelita more
flor
y fauna
more
VOICE
less rage

If possible pls show show why
they run
towards what
why would anyone be
trust

We can tell
so much is left
behind
unsaid

We can feel
your searching
your homesick
for your
end
