Shadorma

There it was
Peep hole through the fence
Inviting me”Come and look!
This is someone’s future home.”
Condominiums.

High risers
Living like sardines ….
Still, better
Than nothing …
Or so we might think, I guess.
People go camping.

Through the hole
I saw Lebanon …
Or Gaza …
Don’t know why.
Bulldozers —  and missiles fall,
Wounded baby cries.

Just a hole
Through a tattered fence —
Brings to mind
Many things
I walked away wondering
What the moon would say.
