Migration — the Butterfly project for children in detention

Migration

It is the time of monarchs here
and we pray for the safety
of their long
deeply endangered flight,
pesticide destroyed milkweed,
their only food,
and the possibility of extinction.

For surely this country
is a brutal place for migration
all migration,
fifteen thousand children
in detention centers.

And, oh, we hope to lift
upon even the slightest breeze
these children’s lives
fragile as wings.

(Please consider sharing this project of Bay Area  youth activists making butterflies with young people you know.)
