No Passport Required

Eleventh Transmission
45 Poems of Protest (Online) December 2019

It won’t happen until
we burn all the flags

erase concepts like

foreigner and enemy

tear down the walls
ignore the borders

and accept that we’re all
in the same small blue boat

a tiny fragile planet
sailing through the void.

It won’t happen until
we look at each other

and say “
Welcome home
instead of “
Papers, please.
