    Summer 2021

    There are so many trees here,
    did someone plant them?
    These trees so close to the
    border look like straitjackets. I
    wonder who is walking on the

    expanse of dirt today. I wonder
    who was walking while I was
    sleeping. I felt footprints inside
    my head. I felt feet jumping. I
    don’t understand this place

    where there is no mist.
