a new poem

by Sara Michas-Martin

On one side of the world two men argue
over the arrangement of sticks as they lay a fire 

in the woods near the festival. Later, the fire 
attracts many people who will shake to the sound 

of hands slapping drums. On the other side, kids unpack
their water guns, their little sacks of flour 

and build stupas out of sand in the river. 

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.
