Half of you

Written & recited by Florida

Only half of you is in one place,
the rest remains in that desert without water,
those days and nights at sea.
Inside the stomach of a red-hot truck.

Those unfamiliar miles you travelled
are more than a journey,
not a voracious appetite for things.

Wouldn’t you run if you were chased?
Wouldn’t you seek refuge if your home was invaded?

Why didn’t you cry for help when you were drowning?

Were you trying to tell us that you are no different
from anyone seeking a home?

Half of you
