the wine dark sea

the wine dark sea
by david caruso

 

. . . some get asylum . . .
. . . some get arrested . . .
“syrian unrest”

 

syrian new year
parents learn to say goodbye
children learn english

 

another sinking boat
but the coastguard
guards the coast

 

river crossing
a cloud covers the moon,
the smuggler’s map

 

d-days
pre-school aged children
storm aegean beaches

 

what appears blue to us, or green
homer’s aegean
a wine-dark sea

 

a grecian moon
what wild necessity
what will for life
