Mile 1.9 Three Minutes in Amerika by EL

For three minutes at the border
Families were allowed to unite
children crying expectations higher than christmas
alarms screaming the opening
arms stretching the 500 mile drive to
hug a loved one

North and South divided by paper
reaching each other for 90 seconds
children screaming through hurricane fencing
We love you thoughwehavenotseenyouforovertenyears

three minutes of hope for the future
children crying seperation now physical
hope for the future
hope failing
hope fading

Alarms blaring: three minutes over
imaginaries lines descending
hope foreclosed for the next

Saudi Arabia
Mainland China
North Korea

Three Minutes
