The Things That Keep Us In
By Ana Ferguson
We Battle for control, building borders.
Borders attract violence.
Borders are a distinction,
like a visual slap to the face.
We do not like to admit we need them.
We seem to love the desire of control.
The shadow of a 14-foot-high steel wall,
Nine miles of a double-layered fence,
glistening under the blistering heat.
A metal wall that slashes us,
Has found its place in the sun.
