Borderless Families

By: Mary Thi Pham

Devoured dreams rusting in

the politics of my skin

a hungry prisoner seeking

a forbidden kingdom

while dead laws govern a corrupt center

a nation diseased

with the -isms

oppose justice

Integrity sleeps in the belly

of an insatiable white hunger

Stop power!

Shatter the enemy lines

there are no enemies

just mothers, fathers,

sisters and brothers.
