Friday August 12th Homestead

Holding hearts on sticks,

And

Dogs on leashes,

Hot and tired,

Sitting and lying on mats,

Panting.

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?”‘

.

No,

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

.

They should be in homes instead.
