tanka

tanka--
small songs I sing
to join
my voice to other voices
hidden in the grass

the child in me

an amber alert 
on my cellphone
at midnight 
the child in me 
goes missing in the dark




border crossing—
at the foot of the wall
between them and us
a handmade ladder
and a child’s torn shirt
