"Higher Ground"

 Higher Ground

            for Khet Thi and the others


I am a vine

climbing through empty nymph casings of Brood X

summer droplets of rain in the Northern Hemisphere

plastic sheaths of tossed newspapers 


The World section coverage of a strange exodus 

“Northbound Wild Elephant Eating and Walking Tour” 
bordering Myanmar a herd has left its habitat


military coup quashes new flowering of freedoms 
underfoot a cri de coeur ignored is quivering 
toward higher ground the call is borne

ghosted poets are carried on the backs of pachyderms 
away from a host of atrocities away from
disquieting lands to become legend


August marks six months since the military coup in Myanmar #justiceformyanmar
