WAR IN THE STREETS OF AMERICA'S ARTESIA

When
bombs blast
from foreign invaders,
debris........rains on homes,
destroys schedules and lifetime comforts.
Children question. “Papa, why?” He explains.
“Hardened hearts give birth to hostility, conflict.”
“But Papa, how long?” “Until reconciliation strategies overturn
evil.” “We miss cartoons.” Those days have lapsed into
dreams. “We are hungry.” He smiles. Youth and yearning’s unchanged
even in war. “The streets are too dangerous today.”
He slips out...........into the night while they
sleep. Sulfur fills his nostrils. The sky
aglow like July’s fireworks at midnight.
Ado..........at market front. Young
ones throwing rocks, yelling.
“We wish you
would go
home.”
