Lena Mubsutina – From

Lena Mubsutina


from Abu Shusha,
a village that lies beneath rubble topped with 
new buildings that house those who ban my return

from Ramallah,
a city that provided temporary shelter
but was soon captured and chained

from the United States,
a country that helped demolish my village and shackle my city
to save the rightful residents from the terror of our nonexistence
