This poem is about human trafficking. It was written in response to seeing images of a truck packed with women and children who thought they were paying for safe (but illegal) passage into the U.S., but were instead being sold into the sex slave industry.
Shut out from light and air,
Little creatures indifferent to life or death
Of what comes
With the open door.
Looking for the first opportunity
This intolerable life.
The Mass grave
Of a two-dimensional reality.
