Where Are the Children- Reyes Ramirez

“New statistics: the government is separating 65 children a day from parents at the border”

the hollow dusk shivers
with weeping &
there are no more children


Reading headline after headline about the separation of children, amongst many other things that are harming youth of color in this country, I wrote a series of short poems that helped me process the truth, to help me process what was happening without rendering me too defeated to act.
