Ode To An Immigrant Worker


Ode to An Immigrant Worker
By Brooke Hart



rich
spices
cuts
designs

made envious
only for a diced meal
mi familia must get buy
spuds split
in Spanish

warm starch
seeping through
their systems
trickling
sinking like a rock

empty stomachs
longing for freedom – home
must find a way to fill this space
inside.

Sun rises
still, they wait
digging in dirt
soil never belonging to them

Gracias.

they move
town to won

waiting.
