A short visual transport of the derset sands and war fought by an illegal immigrant.


Seas of Sand


 


20 days have passed—


And there is still more.


Glass pelts against my skin—


I hear it on my head afore.


 


It feels like the prick of a needle


A sharp point and ding—


Against my very brow


Like my skin is being peeled


By the ping and the ding—


Like a layer of paint falling from its hold.


 


Damn gun jammed again—


Sand inside is worse than glue.


Try to make this work again—


But time is running slim


 


Maybe I should have refused to come


Maybe I should have stayed,


In my safe haven—


Trouble is I am not a citizen yet


But I still fight this crazy war.


 


And on my return I know


They will deport me


Back to Mexico—


Ole!
