Rattle has a weekly feature in which a poet writes about a current event. This week the Poets Respond poem is my brand spanking new poem about the refugee crisis.
It's nerve-wracking to write a poem on Friday and submit it 15 minutes before the midnight deadline, and then have it appear on Sunday. But I do hope you read the poem, and perhaps respond yourself to Poets Respond.
Thanks to Tim Green and Rattle for giving my newest poem a home. It's heart-breaking that the refugees aren't able to get a new home so readily.
