Concordia/By Sami Khalil

The migrant crises!



That same winter,

I had gardened faces when earth was strange,

Lacking Concordia and soft spots of the heart.

That same winter,

An Arcadian sun crossed our barb wired orchards,

Drowning the traces of refugees.

Who, in the quiet moments of apparitions,

When phantoms had lain in wait,

Lived not the daily verses of struggle or

The geography of unsettled borders?

Who remembers not?

Wars, incidents, accidents…Or the art of survival,

When life curiously lingers in death

And love is no more.

That hot summer,

I patterned names in hesitations,

Leaving the introduction of crimson voices to the dying legends.

That hot summer,

When those boats sank helplessly,

So much as our conjugated humanity.

Just as before!
