OUR BURIED DREAMS By Lan Rey Hassan

Poems will embody r-e-a-l-i-t-y as a seven-letter word, but  no, it takes cities that have run out of spaces to bury their dead, takes the tears of boys who learn to swim before walking because home is a shark wallowing in murky water and it takes the cemetery where the hope of men who only find…
