Déjà vu

Covert cycles

span generations.

We see moonrise sunset

days fade into nights

infants grow to men.

But what of a reprise

that would cage children

women and men

brand them as subhuman

where barbed lines under desert skies

cut ‘them’ from ‘us’

excising embrace?

  1. Yes, those covert cycles do span span generations, Janice. I like the way you have woven a glimmer of hope into your Quadrille with the lines: .
    ‘We see moonrise sunset
    days fade into nights’
    only to negate them with the horrors of
    ‘…barbed lines under desert skies
    cut ‘them’ from ‘us’
    excising embrace’.
    What I can’t understand is that there is good in the world but it can’t outweigh the bad.

    1. Thank you, Merril…it is all awful…the reality of immigration detainees probably has been under reported (in Canada too) …but the image of children in cages was/is staggering.
