Written for: Poetic Asides 2019 April PAD Challenge – Day 28
“For today’s prompt, write a remix poem. That is, remix one of your poems from earlier in the month. There are many ways to do this. Turn a free verse poem into a traditional form (using lines from the original poem). Or use erasure to cut down a long poem into a short one. Or expand a short poem into a longer version. Get creative with it.”
Fleeing in terror
Why risk danger?
children can breathe freely
separated from children
Where is the compassion they hoped to find here?
(remixed from exile poem of Day 25)
