Friday August 12th Homestead

Holding hearts on sticks,


Dogs on leashes,

Hot and tired,

Sitting and lying on mats,


A dog jumps on the person beside me

Asking for relief.

“Oh! Sorry,

They didn’t get dinner before we came to the vigil…”


“Should they even be here?”‘



But neither should the children in the tents behind the wall.


They should be in homes instead.
