Kosvo is everywhere

I am separate from you.

We are in great distance apart.

You have lost your home.

Forcibly evicted.

I have a home,

even most temporarily.

I stand in defense,

of the biological balance I love.

You have no defense,

driven to and from borders clogged with your kind.

You seek the refuge of the heart,

the justice of a world in war

that links our lives inextricably

into a quest for freedom, self assured;

A greater dignity

than the genocide and biocide

we both confront in pain.

Lloyd Marbet, 4/6/99
